There were two runaways yesterday, one on Middle and one on Congress street. Piles of kindling wood resulted. A cold, drizzling rain began to fall about three oclock yesterday afternoon, and soon cov ered the sidewalks with a "glare" of ice. Two one-armed foreigners, with magnificeut voices, interested our citizens yesterday singing La Marseillaise, Partant pour la Syne, and sev eral Italiau operatic airs. The scrip flowed in freely, aud one man pave them five dollars. The twenty-fifth anniversary of the marriage of Ferdinand Burnell and wife, was celebrated by a silver wedding at Woodford's Corner last evening. The attendance was large. Mr. George S.

A match game of billiards took place at th e Preble House last evening between two of oui well known billiardists. The contest was a close one, and the game was won by three points only, 750 points being up. The mountain of glass which the little priuc. scaled in the old fairy story, by means of dia mond slippers,didn't compare in point of "slip periness" with the sidewalks last evening. Five inebriates aud thirteen lodgers took shelter at the police station last night. Body Found.—The dead body of a mal· child was found in the office at the entrance ο Evergreen Cemetery, Tuesday afternoon, am Coroner Gould was notified, who viewed th body and decided it was still-born. ' The littl· fellow was wrapped up in female clothing, con eisting of drawers, two skirts and a jacket madi of black cassimere with a velvet collar. Th Coroner ordered the body buried, but broughi the jacket to the city to deliver to the mothe provided she calls on the coroner for't· Th< under garments were made of new linen, ο which material much more was used than wai necessary for the occasion. I The Marr Claim. . Members of the Marr family throughout New England, to tbe number of fifty, assembled a! the parlors of the United States Hotel in this city, yesterday morning, for tbe purpose ol forming an association to recover certain prop erty in Scotland, which, it is claimed, is rightlj theirs by inheritance. The meeting was called to order bv Mr. John C. Marr of Cornish. Mr. Marr was chosen chairman, and Mr. Amos S. Foster of Portsmouth, Ν. H., was chosen Sec retary. The objects of the meeting were then declared to bo first, to ascertain if the heirs of the Marr claim will give written instmctions to Edward Payson, Esq.. of this city (now in Europe on business connected with ihe Burn ham claim) authorizing him to make an exam ination of all records and other papers which have a bearing upon the matter, and to prosc rite the claim. Second, to provide means to defray the necessary charges which will attend the prosecution of the claim. [ Mr, Knight of Auburn, who has been em ployed in the claim business in England for fif teen years, made some remarks in regard to the proper method to be followed in the prosecu tion of this claim. It was voted to accept the services of Mr. Payson, which have recently been offered, and to form a permanent organ ization to be called "the Marr Claim Associa tion." Benjamin F. Marr of Alna, William Trickey of Saccarappa, and J. M. Pease of Cornish, were constituted a committee to raise funds to defray the expenses attending the establish ment of the claim. John C. Marr of Cornish, was elected Treasurer. He was also constitut ed a committee to visit Mr. Parker of Glouces ter, with the purpose of securing certain valua ble papers supposed to be in his possession. Amos S. Foster, John C. Marr and William Trickey were constituted a committee to draw up a set of instructions for the use of Mr. Pay son. The meeting then adjourned, subject to the call of the officers. The property in question is situated in Scot land, on the River Dee, and is said to be worth $(30,000,000. The Marr family in New England claim to be descendants of one John Marr, who is supposed to have settled in Portsmouth, N. H., in 1717. They claim that John Marr was a son of John Êrskine, Earl of Marr, who flour ished as an advocate of the Pretender in 1715. There appears to be no evidence to substantiate this, on tbe claim to heirship if the descent be proved The Vacuum Brake.—The vacuum or ex haust air brake, which the Boston and Maine Railroad is now experimenting, requires no pump or other machinery liable to get out of order. Attached to the boilerhead is a pipe connecting with a small chamber, through which steam may be allowed to escape. Also attached to this chamber and below the pipe connecting with the boilerheacUis another pipe which passes under the entire train. Under eich car, instead of the Westinghaus iron cyl inder, is a rubber cylinder, with iron heads, which may better be described by comparing il to a concertina or Chinese lantern; these are filled with air in their natural condition, and as the engineman allows steam to escape through the pipe into the chamber before alluded to, a draft or suction is created, and the air is drawn fw\m tkn rinna mill ΛρΙΐη/ΙίΐΓβ «· I f 11 immOnSA force, and as the cylinders draw together (as would a concertina) the brakes are drawn with such force as to instantly stop every wheel from revolving, and whatever progress is afterwards made is by the wheels sliding upon the rails. Select Reading.—The final entertainment of the People's Course comes, off at City Hall this evening and consists of a select reading by Prof. Churchill, the well kuown and popular elocutionist, Some of the selections have al ready been named in our colnmus, and the others will be fully as good. The reputation which Prof. Churchill has acquired as a finish ed reader, will, without doubt, attract a large audience to hear him. Arrangements have baen made by which the pupils of the public schools will be admitted at reduced rates. It is to be hoped that the reduction will generally be taken advantage of, for .elocution is a branch of education to which none too much attention is paid. SpntrruALisM.—We hear that next Monday, March 31, will be the 25th anniversary of the Advent of modern SDiritualism in the United States; and that the members of the Spiritual associations of this city, with all of the same faith, or favorable to it, in other places in the vicinity, are invited to assemble at 7 o'clock on said day, in the Army and Navy Union Hall, corner of Brown and Congress streets, where appropriate addresses may be expected from various individuals. Portland Dby Dock.—At the auction sale of F. O. Bailey & Co. yesterday, $66,000 of the Portland Dry Dock bonds, due Oet. 1st, 1878, and bearing seven per cent, interest, were sold to Mr. Phillip H. Brown; $50,000 at 35, and $6000 at 33 per cent. It was understood that the Trustees under the mortgage have com menced a suit for possession and foreclosure for the benefit of the bondholders, and will un doubtedly gain possession in July next. Sacred Concert.—A sacred concert will be given at the First Baptist Church, on Wednes day evening, April 2d. The following talent has been engaged : Mrs. H. N. Wetherbee, Miss Ada Cary, Messrs. Will H. Stockbridge, W. H. Beckett and H. Kotzschmar. Tickets for sale at Stockbridge's.Brunell's and Loring, Short & Harmon's. The talent of the parties engaged affords a surety that the concert will be a fine one. Amateur Concert.—The ladies of State street church will give a second amateur con cert at their chapel Thursday evening April 2d. assisted by Mrs. Chase, Miss Lewis, Mrs. Far ley, Miss Ada Cary, Mr. Stockbridge,Mr. How ard and Mr. Coffin, vocalists, and Mrs Thomp son, Alias Dyer, the Misses Blanchard and Miss O'Brion, instrumentalists. Funeral Services.—The funeral service! the. late Henry P. Deane will take place from his late residence, No. 50 State street, at three o'clock this afternoon. At a meeting of the Cumberland Bar, held yesterday, it was resolv ed that bis profes ional brethren should attend the funeral in a body. A committee was ap pointed to draft appropriate resolutions. There bas been a great deal of excitement and jealous feeling demonstrated in various ways, during the past three months by certain competing companies or their agents,relative to Tontine Insurance. «uv UUU OUVUbBD V/λ lUU UIJUitUUIt/ UllV Assurance Society, and its "Tontine Savings Fund Policy," to all of which we have given no notice, except when an attempt was made to smuggle a bill through the Legislature detri mental to the interests of several leading com panies, then, even, we only presented our posi tion before that honorable body, and were unanimously supported by both branches autl strengthened by the voice of all the Insurance Committee after a fair hearing of both side9. Still we find a few prompted by envy, jeal ousy, and we thiuk we might say malice, try ing to detract from our good name and laurels won by publishing articles in our papers, paid for at from ten to twenty cents per line, as the case may be. To those anonymous attacks we do not pro pose to reply. We publish in this issue our an nual statement and balance sheet, which speaks for itself. If there are any companies who wish to com pare notes with the Equitable, or with the plans of our doing business, they are cordially invited to appear in the columns of the Press over the •ignatures of their representatives in this State, that we may know whence it comes and whom to answer. We do not court controversy, as the past will testify, but we do ask open fair nesa- Roberts & Clark, Managers for Maine. Mr. James C.

It almost passes belief that a single life in s ι ranee company should bo able, after only thirteen years of effort, to make such » busi ness report as that just published by the Equit able Life Assurance Society. Startiug in 1859, without other capital than the $100,000 requir ed by law, aud wedding itself, as it were, into the very heart of a business—even then sup posed to be overdone by the few conservatives who tilled the field—the Equitable has made for itself an enviable position in the confidence of the public. Instead of the $100,000 it had at the beginning, it now has almost $20,000,000 of substantial, well-invested, interest-earn ing assets; and from the modest business it be gan with, its volume of transactions has now become enormous. That a life insurance company, only thirteen years old, can report having issued 12,491 pol icies, insuring nearly $52,000,000, in one year, almost staggers credulity. For, it must bo re membered, this sum of $52,001,000 is not only a large amount of itself, but also that it is nearly twice as much as the average amount at risk in all the life insurauce companies in the coun try, young and old. That is, the Equitable'» busiuess last year alone was equal to nearly twice the average aggregate business of all American companies during their entire exist ence. But, to make this comparison more striking, we needouly reproduce a few figures from the official returns for 1871 of certain oth er life coepanies older thau the Equitable, the names being omitted for obvious reasons: Whole amt. One Tear's business of Organized. Years, at risk. the Equitable Life. °1830 21 «32,805,538 #51,811,079 1851 20 10,049,905 51,911,079 1S50 21 00,965,772 51,911,079 1853 19 3,526.192 61,911,079 1859 12 22,752,060 51,911,079 1853 19 49,995,094 51,911,079 1850 21 42,140,907 81,911,079 1851 20 33,589,025 51,911,079 1850 21 7,722,945 51,911,079 1847 24 22,771,150 51,911,079 1845 26 6,976,260 51,911,079 1849 22 35,713,029 51,911,079 Here, then, are twelve companies of the av erage age of twenty years, whose entire risks, as the result of their twenty years' work, av erage only about $27,000,000; while in contrast, we hâve the Equitable reporting for 1872 alone, tje acquisition of new business amounting to $52,000,000. Now this is certainly deserving of eulogy. Talk of enterprise, vigor of manage ment, progress aud the like! Where, in any other business, or in any other institution in the same liue of busiuess, can the Equita ble's prosperity be matched? And, if not, upon what principle of fairness shall a disinterested "outsider" be forbidden to accord the highest meed of praise to a compauy whose managers can make so goodly an exhibit as this? The other features of the Equitable's state ment are almost equally remarkable, but we have no spaco now to refer to them particular ly. We have only selectod tho one point which, at tho moment, occurred to us most striking aud which- certainly illustrates how firm and deep a hold the company has upon the confidence of the community. It only re mains for us to add the expression af our firm belief that this confidence is entirely de served. mar,27,d&wlt.

The Central Pnasrn(rr Depot at Albany to be Held by Government. New York, March 26.—It is stated that Commissioner Douglas has ordered the internal reveuue collector at Albany to distrain in the name of the United States the passenger depot or round house of the New York Central rail road at Albany, and offer the same at public aale. Should the company not make a bid ex ceeding one half of a fair valuation the collect or is ordered to turu in the property to the cred it of the United States and close thedoors against the company, unless they choose to lease it on terms laid down by the government. The com pany will then have twelve months in which to redeem it, paying twenty per cent, additional and all the costs to which the government may be subject to, otherwise the property by the law reverts to the United States. The Ball'· Head Bank. The commissioners of the depositors and stockholders of the Bull's Head Bank, lately suspended, bad a conference to-day. The stock holders' committee announced that they had agreed on the proposition to increase the capi tal stock of the bank and allow the depositors who ure most interested to take preferred stock enough to make np the full amount of the defi ciency, thus placing the bank in working order again. The Express states that circumstances have come to light which indicate that the bank was in a hopeless condition weeks before the offi cers formally closed the institution The widow of the former cashier had deposited with the bank for safe keeping $6000 worth of stock and other property, aud when she wished to take it out of the bank she was put off from day to day, until finally the cashier confessed be could not find the box, remarking, However, that it was safe aud he would send it as soon as found. Mr. Halsted, a depositor and stockholder, left a Jfox containing $20,000 worth of United States .bonds for safe keeping. A short time ago he yemauded them, and the cashier informed him after some time spent in the vault, apparently looking for them, that ho could not find them just then but they could be found next day, at which time the cashier told Halsted that the bank had taken the bonds a few days bei ore in a temporary money straight and hypothicated them. The value of the bonds was returned in notes and other securities. The total loss so far as ascertained is $310,000, as follows: Capital stock $200,000, surplus $92,000, current deposits $57,000. The iUurde-ei·· of Goodrich. The name of the woman who in all probabili ty shot Cbas. Goodrich has been discovered, but is withheld from publication. She lived in the third house from his, was his mistress, had given birth to a child and was deceived by him. covery of the murder and has not since been seen. A third li-dy is now said to be mixed up in this mysterious affair who is known in liter ary circles in New York, but whose name is also suppressed. Win. W. Goodrich offers $2500 reward for the arrest of the murderer of his brother, payable upon conviction. The father of the murdered man was to-day award ed letters of administration upoa the estate. Withdrawal of Postal Car·. There is considerable stir at the post office over the expected withdrawal by railroad com panies of postal cars irom service on the first of April. It is thought the force of clerks will be utterly unable to attend to the great flood of mail matter which in that event will pour in, and it is estimated that four days will be re quired for the delivery of letters, which now reach their destination in fifteen hours. The demand of the railroad companies is for $800 per mile instead of $375 now paid them. It is rumored that the companies persist in their de termination. The Postmaster General will en deavor to procure the passage of a law giving the department special power over railroads. The Greeley monument. The President of Typographical Uuion No. 6, of this city, reports that subscriptions to the Greeley monument fuud are coniiug rapidly from printers throughout the country, and that there is every prospect of success. Orciaion Tor the Ring. In the great six million suit, brought in the name of the people of this State against Tweed, Connolly, Ingersoll and others, to re cover the $6,000,000 taken from the county of New York by what are known as "audit frauds," justice Hardin has decided on the de murrer of Ingersojl that the people of the State have no right of action against Ingersoll. He bases his opinion on the broad ground,which is fatal if sustained to the whole suit, that the county and not the State are the real parties in interest within the meaning of the code.

The Committee on Elections, heretofore in structed to inquire into the most practicable mode of electing President and Vice President, were given le ve to hold sessions in Washing ton or elsewhere. Mr. Anthony offered a resolution calling on the Secretary of the Interior to report at the next session the reason why the pneumatic tube, to connect the Capitol with the Govern ment printing-office, has not been completed, how much money was expended on the same, and all the facts connected therewith. Mr. Anthony said there was only a hole in the north of the Capitol to show anything trf ttio tube, and it is not known whether there was money enough to fill it up. The resolution was adopted. Air. Windom called up the following resolu tion heretofore submitted by him : Resolved, That the Select Committee ou Transportation rontes to the seaboard be di rected to inquire and report to the Senate at its next session as to the nature and extent of the obligations subsisting between railroad compa nies and the postal service of the country, ana whether any and what additional legislation is necessary to guard the postal service against hostile action on the part of any or all said rail road companies. Mr. Windoni said that although Congress in creases the compensation of railroad companies some $500,000, it is now understood that they refuse to perform part of the service, uamely, as to postal cars. Mr. Morrill, of Vt., said the railroad compa nies havi'ig entered into a combination, it was necessary to make inquiries in order that the Senate might take prompt and efficient action when they met again. The resolution was adopted. Mr. Morton referred to the fact that at the commencement of this session Rev. Dr. New man was elected chaplain, that Senator Camer on afterwards moved to reconsider the vote, but promise to withdraw his motion. The Senator not now bîing in Washiggton has asked the Senate to dispose of the question. The Senate theu voted, refusing to reconsider. The following resolution was adopted: Resolved, That the Secretary of the Treas ury and the Secretary of the Interior respect ively be directed to transmit to the Senate any information of their respective departments as to the amount of bonds issued by or on credit of the Central Pacific Railroad Company, forming a first mortgage or lien on the Com pany's road and property, and what property specifically, and also the amount of said bonds issued from time to time, and what dates they they were issued, also to ascertain and report ueder what general designatons such bonds are commonly designated or known, and to trans mit all the said information, be brought down to the latest dates, and the Senate at the com mencement of next session of Congress. Mr. Morrill, of Maine, offered an amendment to the pending resolution of Mr Anthony re lative to Ex-Senator Patterson, as follows: "That the Damnhlet * Observations on t.hp re port of the Committee of tho Senati respect ing the Credit Mobilier of Amerida, by J. W. Patterson,' be received, filed and printed with the report of said Committee." The resolutions as thus amended passed. The Senate adopted Mr. NVindom's resolution instructing the Committee on Transportation to enquire into the general subject of the trans portation of products and commodities between the interior and seaboard. On motion of Mr. Anthony it was resolved that the President of the Senate at four o'olock to-day declare the Senate adjourned sine die, and on his motion a committee of three were appointed to wait on President Graut and in form him that unless he had further communi cations to make they were ready to adjourn. The Chair appoiuted Messrs. Anthony, Mor ton and Casserly such committee. The Senate at 1.40 went into executive ses sion. At 3.25 the doors were opened, when the committee appointed to wait upon the President reported that they had performed that duty and the President informed them he had no further communications to make to the Senate. The Chair appointed Messrs. Mitchell and Davis additional members of the Select Com mittee on Transportation. On motion of Mr. Stockton of Nevr York, it was unanimously resolved that the thanks of the Senate are due aud are hereby respectfully teuder· d to Hon. Henry Wilson, Vice President of the United States, for the ability, courtesy and impartiality with which he has presided over the deliberations of this body. Λ Mnrdcr Case. Chicago, March 26.—Wm. L. Laugston, the son of the old lady, who with the little girl Mar.v Eastman living with lier, was found murdered in bod recently, near Paradise, Coles county, 111., has confessed te killing both par ies, and accuses his wife as an accessory.— Langston is in jail waiting trial. The only mo tive he assigns for the crime is the instigation and persuasion of his wife, who had never had Sleasant feelings toward the old lady. In ad ition to this it is probable that Langston and bis wife were somewhat over auxious to get possession of the old lady's property. There is a very strong feeling against the murderer in the neighborhood where the tragedy occured, and had he not been removed by the officers he probably would have received summary justice. Representative Garfield Requested to He *iga. Cleveland, March 20.—The Trumbull Coun ty Republican Convention at Warren to-day, adopted a reealution asking Hon. James A.

Washington, March 26.—The following has been received from Van Bremer's Ranche, Mo doc county : To Col. W. D. Whipple, Adjutant General, Headquarter» of the Army, Washington: Accompanied by Col. Gilman, I had an un satisfactory interview with Capt. Jack yester day afternoon in the neighborhood of his camp. The result confirmed the impression previously reported that the wai* faction still predominates. CaDt. Jack's demeanor is that of a man under duress and afraid to exhibit bis real feehug. Important questions were evaded or not answered at all. The substance of all that could be elicited from him was that lie did not want to fight, that the lava bed was a bad place, and that he wanted to go to his home on Lost River. He wanted all of the sol diers moved out of the country. If anybody wanted to talk to him they must come to the camp, and if anything was to be done for him it must be done there. The meeting of yester

day was partly accidental, as I had not intend to communicate with Capt. Jack until the troop8 were in their new position, but the con ference was invited by the Indians and was ac cepted. As first arranged, Capt. Jack aud Schorchin John, the second chief, were to have met Col. Oilman and myself, but wh ·η we reached the place wc fouud the war faction had substituted their leader for Scorchin. No doubt for the purpose of watching Capt. Jack aud see that he did not commit himself to their preju dice. The troops are now moving into their positions, and when they have reached them communication may again be opened with the Modocs, with the hope of better results. (Signed) E. R. Caîîby, 'ε· The "Prophet of the New Di>pcn*nlien'> in Trouble. Augusta, Ga., March 26.—James F. Curry, the so-called "Prophet of the new dispensation" was tried at Oppling, Columbia county, to day on a charge of| adultery and formication, before county judge Gibson. Curry came from Massachusetts with a colony of about 200 men and women, over a year ago, aud bought lands and settled in Columbus county. They lived in teuts and held the property in common. Curry called himself "Elijah and the prophet of Jehovah," supreme in things, spiritual and temporal. The colony went on swimmingly for a brief period, but the "prophet" took to himself too many wives. Jealousy and insubor dination ensued in the colouy and many of the colonists returned to Massachusetts, being pro vided with free passage to the nearest seaports, with free tickets to Charleston or Savanah. Finally the colony became so demoralized and Curry so licentious that the grand jury indicted him and his Queen paramour. Curry, robed in white linen, with head and feet bare in imitation oc the Saviour, appeared nefore the Court. His Queen appeared in the game attire with white stockings on her feet and a white bow on her head. Speaking in his own defence he maintained that men and wo men could live together as man and wife with out cohabiting, and that by mortification and prayer they could become perfect. He repelled the charge of insanity and displayed much eru dition and familiarity with the scriptures. He said he had revelation after revelation that a new era had dawned when men and women should come out of the natural of things to a higher state of purity. After speeches from the prosecution and defendant the jury retired, and after half an hours' absence returned and gave a verdict of guilty with a recommendation to mercy. Sentence has been deferred for a few weeks. It is thought that the prophet and his followers will be given an opportunity to find another Canaan far away from here to pitch their tents. An Investigation in Michigan. Jackson, March 25.—The Honse of Repre sentatives, by the concurrence of both nolii.ir.al parties, passed a resolution to-day approving the action of the committee appointed to inves tigate the conduct of Attorney General Morris, in reference to the issuance of Slate warrants under the railroad subsidy law.

Our markets the past week have presented but few new features com pi red with those of previous weeks. There is a little more stirring in business as the coast and river navigation opens. The Macldas steamer, on her first trip last week was loaded down with goods for Eastern merchants, purchased In this city. As the other steamers and packets are placed on their respective routes business will be increased; for our Maine merchants find they can obtain goods in this city on full as good, and in many cases better terms than in Boston. The Cuba vessels are arriving dailp loaded with molasses and sugar, and they infuse new life into business. The changes in values of merchandise uro very slight as will be noticed by our prices current. Money is unusually tight.

On account of the supply of dead Beef from the West being nearly all disposed of and uot much more to come from that section only in refrigerator cars, the butchers think that t^eir trade will be better than it has been of late. Prices advanced full aamuch as they fell oû last week, a few very nice Cattie being sold at 8c lb, L. VV .— Oil account ot an accideni on the Boston & Albany Railroad a part of the Western Cattle trains were de laved and did not get in until late Tuesday.

Remarks—We cannot renort any improvement in the market, notwithstanding stocks are sold up quite £ «? ι t^e reason and the prospective arrivals of both domestic and foreign are lignt, For nearly a year past the business has been quite an unfortunate one for all parties. The large destruction of Wool and Woolens by the tire in November last, enabled hold ers in the interior to rtulize good prices for the bulk of the domestic fleece on hand, but as week after week passes, the demand for woolens falls so much short of expectation, manufacturers purchase cau tiously, and dealers are anxious to close np the stocks on hand, the future market is so uncortaiu. The New York Economist says:—Henceforth we look for a more steady trade at uniform rates, and woul l advise the traue generally to cease "croaking" ab mt the high price of wool, as ft is now as low as it is likely to go till the new clip comes upon the market. The California clip is likely to be late this year, and the reeeiot· of foreign wools hnmediattly in prosnect are very light. From South America we have late advices that the clip this year has come upon the market in a bad if not heavy condition. There has been recently a groat tumble in the price of Monte video wools, but if we take condition into calculation, it may prove more apparent than real. In Philadelphia there is no improvement to notice in prices. A number of manufacturers are looking through the market, but they generally show no in clination to purchase largely at current market rates. Holders generally are tirm in their views. Bosioa Boot and Shoe market. Boston, March 25.—The shipments of Boots and bhoes from this market to places outside of New Eng past week comprise 32,592 cases, against 33.651 for the same week last year. tota* 8lllI,ments since January 1, have been 342,927 cases, against 342,080 cases for the same peri od last year. Tuere continues to be a fair number of buyers from the smaller markets, both south and west, "and full the usual quantity of goods are taken by New York, Philadelphia and Baltimore. Manutactursrs are also in the daily receipt of orders from the early buy ers, who find their trade fully up to expection. There is also something doing with the New England trade, although many of the retailers have waited for more spring-iike weather. We think there is, unon the whole, a more cheerful feeling among manufacturers and buyers, and as we have previously remarked, the season is likely to close better than it promised at the opening.
