In humble recognition of our dependence upon Almighty God, who h s so graciously remembered us In the abundance of His loving kindness and tender mercies, I do, with the advice of the Executive Coun cil, appoint Thursday, the Seventeenth day of April Next, as a day of public Fasting, Humilia tion and Prayer, and recommend its appropriate ob servance by all the people of the State. Consecrat ing the day to prayer and supplication, that we may bo strengthened in all upright purposes and every noble endeavor, and mindful of those whom misfor tune and sorrow have made deserving our kindly sympathies, let us not forget those acts of charity and , good will which give to life its highest joy, and lift the thoughts in holy communication with the Great Giver of all good. “Is not this the Fast that I have chosen? to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, aud that ye break every yoke? Is it not to deal thy bread to the hun gry, and that thou bring the poor that arc cast out, to thy house?” Given at the Council Chamber, in Augusta, this twenty-fifth day of March, in the year of our Loid, one thousand eight hundred and seventy three, and of the Independence of the United States of America the ninety-seventh. SIDNEY PERHAM. By the Governor. Georoe G. Stacy, Secretary of State. Railroad Mall Service. In various States the conflict between the people and the corporations has been most prominent the present year and assumed dif ferent forms; but the pending issue between the government and the railroads by which the mail service of the whole nation is threat ened with delay, is the most important. The difficulty grows out of the fact that Congress has fixed a certain compensation per mile for postal cars for the year, while the railroad powers demand double that sum and refuse the service unless the price demanded, be paid. The Postmaster General replies that he has no power to yield to their demand as the rates have been fixed by Congress and that all he can do if the companies refuse to do the service, is to make the best use of the advantages afforded and wait until Congress meets next winter, when he would ask for more power. On the side of the department, the New York Herald represents the Postmaster /lonoml oa cooincr that tliP MtPS 1)V the companies are so extraordinary that they cannot be employed. He also stated in reply to a question as to what the authorities would do, that the extent ofthe power of the gov ernment over railroads had not yet been lully defined but if the roads bring about the issue they will find what the power of the govern ment is, since Congress will probably decide that railroads being post routes,are under the control of the government and may be com pelled to afford proper facilities at reasonable rates, and refusing to do so, Congress may declare that the Postmaster General shall have power to forward by his own postal cars and locomotives as the public interest n ay require and then admonish the companies to keep the tracks clear for the purpose. The Postmaster General hopes that there will be no occasion for the exercise of this un usual power by the federal government though he exhibits some warmth of feeling by warning the companies that if they refuse to perform the postal service required they “will get a scorching from Congress in December.’’ On the part of the railroad companies there is a demand of forty cents a mile for running postal cars where they now receive no more than they did before the adoptionjof the pos tal car system and less per mile than they transport cars ofthe cheapest kind of freight in the slowest freight trains. The rate re ceived was adopted before the introduction of postal cars when the mails were carried in the half of one baggage car. In 1864 the pos tal car system was introduced as an experi ment between Philadelphia and Baltimore and was soon after adopted on all the leading railroads, greatly facilitating the distribution of mails in transitu which during that period have been largely increased. All the while, the companies have been running these pos tal care, the Post Office department has prom ised adequate compensation; but for nine years Congress has refused to grant the terms required and as a final resort the companies propose to take off the cars April 1st. Thus briefly are the two sides to the dis pute stated. It is very possible that the rail road companies feeling that they are masters of the situation have demanded an exorbi tant price for the service. But on tae other hand if what they state is true, they certain ly do not receive a fair compensation unless their ordinary charges are extravagant, as we fear they are in too mauy cases. The compa nies should be offered a fair compensation for providing and running postal cars which, it seems, could be easily fixed by men of experience and then some measures taken to make them se; that it is for the mutual interest of the people and coun try to perform the service, At any rate it is not a case where the railroad corporations can dis creetly show a determination to play the ty >au« 1*0 bUV >J/IV Wl kiuv VUUUUJ UlO UUl 1U the best humor to have a service that has be come a public necessity interrupted because corporations that are their creatures and in a certain sense are their servants forget the nature of the relation that exists between them. ___ Impending Flood. There is good—or bad—prospect of a freshet this year which shall make history for the denizens of the Penobscot Valley. The Ban gor Commercial arithmetic man has been wrestling with the mathematics of the matter and estimates that on the 8000 square miles drained by the Penobscot Kiver there is an average depth of five feet of snow holding at least a foot and a half of water giving a grand total of three hundred thousand million (300,000,000,000) cubic feet of water to be disposed of by absorption intotheearth, evapo ration into the air or transportation through the river channel to the sea. In the heaviest freshet on record it is estimated that 6,000, 000 cubic feet of water passed Bangor each minute. At this rate it would require thirty five days to carry off the snow. Should the bulk of the snow be held back until the mid dle of April, as seems quite possible,and then under the influence of warm rains and a hot *un, be set in motion in fifteen or twenty days, the Bangoreans will be likely to have more water than their tastes require, especial ly as they are reputed to have no marked nat ural love for the article. The Supreme Court of Illinois has recent ly given a most important decision affecting the responsibility of a husband for the acts of his wife. A woman who had been slandered by a married woman, sued the husband ot the oflender for damages. It was declared by the judge who announced the decision of the court, that modern legislation had almost obliterated the common law, so far as the marital relations were concerned. The wife f having been emancipated by legislation, the husband must not be left in slavery; he has no longer a claim upon her property, person or time, aud this relieves him of responsibili ties heretofore existing. In consonance with this principle it was decided that the husband was not responsible for utterance of slander by the wife. The justice of this decision few will the princip'es of law under which W*re llable for damages in cases of ilre^ ;Came <i°wn from :i time when *ea y aa urgent necessity for a Crusade to secure a recognition of the rights of women. Anna Yirnmque Cano. Our State exchanges for the last few weeks have presented sonic of the high-tonedest spec imens of the amenities of journalism that have ever diversified their usually' placid col umns. The Houllon Pioneer and Times are hard at it, exchanging -“winged words,” as Homer calls them, with reckless lavishness. The Times accuses a prominent Aroostook politician of an attempt at crim. con. which met with a virtuous and decided refusal from the colored domestic to whom the “rejected addresses” were paid; whereupon the editor of the Times is promptly arrested on a charge of libel, and gives bail, the neighbors of the traduced turn out en masse with a brass band and march to his residence, where they are received with emotion and oyster stew and things and a genuine love feast ensues. The Pioneer takes up the cudgels lustily in be half of the assailed party and speaks in an aggressively derogatory manner ol the editor ot the Times, while that journal repeats its charge, asseverates that it is right and has not told all it knows either and proposes to fight it out, while both exponents of public sentiment bristle all over with letters and affidavits pro and con from everybody male and female who knows any thing about the matter and from some who don’t seem to know much anyway. Another lively case is at Belfast where the Journal accuses the collector of the port with having a store front which he sells imported molasses, whereupon the collector replies through the Progressive Age over his own signature, intimating that the Journal man wanted to marry a well known young lady journalist and that she endowed him with “one half a pair of mittens.” He further alleges that his antagonist is not good looking and gives some points of physi cal make up in which he thinks the editor is deficient viewed from an artistic stand point. Now, just here, we protest that this is a question which should never have got into politics. And besides the collector is not on tenable grounds, for everybody knows that Simpson is one of the handsomest bach elors in Maine, is in all points eligible and that no young lady in possession of an aver age amount of good taste and sense would be likely to decline his matrimonial overtures. The editor proposes to revenge this re flection upon ill's personal comeliness by publishing in the next issue of the Journal a full length portrait of the collector, while in the last number the belligerent offi cial is unmercifully riddled by a plentiful flight of those shafts of sarcasm for which the Journal :s famous. Both warriors make free use of their Mother Goose lore and in dulge without stint in rhythmical parodies calculated to cast contempt upon the ene my. Our leading sentiment in iooking upon these fiays among the weeklies is one of commiseration for the parties because they can get at each other only ouce a week. It is painful to think of the internal convulsions whisli must result from bottling up tlieir wrath during the six days when they cannot »ic/i it vninn TP o -- - — J - - — ~— other every morning how happy they would be. We cannot close without a word of counsel to our combative friends, which may perhaps be most effectively stated in the somewhat familiar words of good Dr. Watts, which we feel the more justified iu quoting because poesy has been largely introduced into one of the conflicts to which we have re ferred. Let dogs delight to bark and bite, For *tis their nature t», Lot bears and lions growl and fight For God has made them so; But children you should never let Your angry passions rise, Your little han Is were never made To tear each other’s eyes. The statement of the Kennebec Journal respecting the action of the Governor and Council relative to the question of Secretary of the Board of Agriculture is entirely erron eous, as we are informed by two members of that body. Mr. Goodale did not declare in his communication to the Governor that he should assume the duties of the office ot Sec retary, but merely protested against the re cognition of Mr. Boardman as such. Neither did the Governor and Council decide that the Board of Agriculture must annually elect a Secretary, but were of the unanimous opin ion that it is within the province of the Board so to do it it chose. The Council drew a warrant for the salary of Mr. Board man for the time that he actually performed the duties of the office, notifying Mr Good ale that if be desired it, they would take the opinion of the Attorney General as to wheth er Mr. Boardman was or was not 1' gaily elected Secretary. This is a very different statement from that made by the State Pa per. Now that we have heard the other side of the story, the Augusta despatch stating that a Brunswick father claimed $325 from the State on the rather startling declaration that his son had died in consequence of cruel. treatment received while at the Reform School, is far from the truth. The fact is that the boy was discharged from the institu tion before the expiration of his sentence and was in good health at the time and died of quick consumption, contracted after leav ing the school. Mb. Owes of ■ the Kennebec Journal states that he furnished the Augusta Asso ciated Press agent with the report which we supposed to have been taken from our special of Tuesday night. The agent, Mr. J, H. Clark, is thus shown to be entirely blameless in the transaction. We regret that a misap prehension should have led to injurious strict ures upon Mr. Clark’s conduct and take pleasure in declaring his exculpation in this case to be complete. Messrs. Dow, Thompson and Harlow, Committee of the Executive Council on the Reform School, will immediately visit similar institutions in New England for the purpose of investigating their methods of adminis tration, with a view to the adoption of the most approved system in our State institu tion. A Dearth of Agricultural Reports.— The report of the Department of Agriculture for 1872 is a particularly interesting document, containing, among other matter, elaborate pa pers on Fish Culture, Forest Culture, Silk Cul ture, Diseases of Horses, etc. The Depart ment is at present in receipt of from two to three hundred letters daily, containing appli cations for copies of this report. To save the public trouble and misapprehension, tlie Wash ington Chronicle draws attention to the fact that Congress adjourned without makiDg any provision for printing this report or distributing it among the people. .Shortly before adjourn ment the House passed a resolution authorizing two hundred and fifty-five thousand copies to be printed for distribution. The Senate amend ed it by reducing the number to 50,000 and providing that they should be sold at the rate of fifty cents a copy. In this form the resolu tion came back to the House the last day of the session, was not taken up again, and was there fore lost. The Senate, in executive session, ordered 1200 copies printed for its own use; and the head of the department is entitled to 2500 copies, which will be needed for the depart ment’s agents. There are, therefore, no copies of the report to be had, and no provision what ever for their printing and distribution. The valuable information which it contains, and the able papers which at present slumber in manuscript, will be practically useless until Congress meets again and orders more eopies printed. The Liberty Post Office “Robbery It appears that the “robber” of the Libert* Post Office was Joseph Carr, Esq., of this eit* Special Agent of the Post Office Department acd the affair is a warning to careless Post masters. The Post Office at Liberty has b£n kept by proxy Mr. Knowlton, a trader, being Postmaster, while the duties of the office were performed by a woman, at her house. Fre quent complaints having been made of the loose manner in which it was kept, Mr. Carr proceeded to make an investigation. Stopping incognito in the village, be visited the Post Of fice and found no difficulty in abstracting quite a number of letters. Duringthe same evening after the arrival of the mail, be called again and took away the mail bag svliich was care lessly left exposed. The next morning he call ed upon the Postmaster, who stated to him that the mail bag bad been stoluu. He there upon informed him that be was the supposed thief, and advised him to resign which be did A new Postmaster will soon be appointed_ Bangor Whig. Another Good Thing in Chicago.—The Mayor of Chicago who has shown himself on several occasions a mau of considerable 'back bone,” has addressed a letter to the’Common Council endorsing the suggestion of the Police Commissioner that the saloons be closed from 11 o'clock at night until five or six in the morn ing. The Mayor calls attention to the fact that a large proportion of the brawls, assaults an< murders which swell the criminal recor o 10 city are committed about and after m‘ “'*> * > and that many of them would be prevented if the drinking places were closed. He adds s „ nificantly that the members of tlie police force would be less exposed to temptation if these were closed. According to the Chicago Post, the better class of the saloon keepers them selves are in favor of 1 he movement, and it is improbable that serious opposition will be de veloped in any quarter. The persons most af fected by it are thieves, garroters and profes sional cut throats, who drive a brisk business between midnight and daybreak, and whose work is greatly facilitated by the saloons.

The proprietor s sympathies were aroused and he not only gave them a good breakfast, but raised them a small sum of money, and gave them a note to Conductor Barhydt of the Central Bail road, and also one to Mr. Brownell, clerk of the Superintendent of the county poor, who, after qu'stioning them closely, drew up an affidavit of the facts, which the man subscribed as John P. Kimball. Mr. B. told the family to meet him at the depot in the afternoon and he would see they were forwarded to Syracuse In the afternoon Mr. B. met the family at the depot and procured tickets for them to Syracuse. Mr. Brownell then spoke to Conductor Barhydt about the family, when he (Barhydt) said, “that’s the family I brought from Sheneetady yesterday.” Mr. Brownell being satisfied they were frauds took the tickets from them. An Important Point in the Horse Shoers’ Strike.—It will be seen that Judge Parmenter has given his decision, holding Hor gau, one of the striking horse-sboeis, over to the Superior Court on both complaints. The decision turns mainly upon the Judge’s opinion that the offence comes within the statute which prohibits injury to the person or property of another, for the sate of pecuniary advantage. This is a very significant judicial action. It shows that when combinations pass beyond their legitimate object of binding tho.-e who luiuimuiuj aootiiu tuciii) auu mtriici nuti the rights o£ others, they cannot be justified in ' the courts. The principle is a vital one, and and may yet be found to have a wide applica- 1 tiou, which it would be well for all parties to heed in season — Boston Journal News and Other Items.
