BY THE «OYEBNOR, A PROCLAMATION. in humble recognition of our dependence upon Almight y Ood, who has bo graciously remembered us in the abundance of His loving kindness and tender mercies, I do, with the advice of the Executive Coun oil, appoint Thursday, the Seventeenth day of April Next, as a day of public Fasting, Humilia tion and Prayer, and recommend its appropriate ob wivttuuc uy an me people 01 rue ©rai«. Ing the day to prayer and supplication, that we may be strengthened iu ail upright purposes and every noble endeavor, and mindful of thoso whom misfor tune and sorrow have made deserving our kindly sympathies, let ns not forget those acts of chanty 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. o lot the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? Is it not to deal thy bread to the hun gry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out, to thy house?" Given at the Council Chamber, in Augusta, this twenty-fifth day ol 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 tiinetv-seventh. SIDNEY PERHAM. By the Governor. Geobge G. Stacy, Secretary of State. Five New York Congressmen are credited with returning the $5000 so generously voted them by their colleagues. There are, how ever, thirty-orte from that Stale all told, but the other twenty-six are silent. An exchange deems that the discussi >n of available presidential candidates thus early in the new term of four years is not advisable, particularly by those papers that made such a ridiculous figure six months before the last election. According to the theory of Senator Conkling, if Senator Caldwell had been ex pelled, the man elected to fill his place would be entitled to the salary from March 1871. Grace Greenwood thinks Senator Pomeroy would have taken it, were he elected to fill such a vacancy. In view of the fact that nearly every week frightful accidents occur in New England fac tories, by persons having their nair or cloth ing caught by the machinery about which they ate employed,the New York Times wise ly suggests that the operators should not be allowed to wear flowing hair, scarfs, and long dresses during working hours. The Star understands that the Enquirer, which succeeded the Riverside Echo, has suspended publication. We are serry to be lieve that this is the case, for the Enquirer, under its present management, was an ex cellent family journal and deserved a better fate. If such is the case, it is because the .publishers have attempted to do too much— that is, they cannot furnish a two dollar pa per and a one dollar picture for less than two dollars—a lesson that olheiS will learn sooner or later, as we had occasion to remark not long ago in reference to a less deserving pub lication. _ The suit of James W. Sayward pro ami against William A. Albee, lias engrossed the attention of the Supreme Court in Bockland for fifteen days, eliciting intense interest and resulting in a verdict for the plaintiff of $1000. The action was brought for alleged malpractice on the par t of the defendant,who Is a physician and surgeon, in setting the plaintiff’s arm, who is a child about four i years of age. The arm was broken rather mare than a year since and was set by Dr. Albee, but by unskillful treatment or some other cause, mortification set in and amputa tion was resorted to to save the life of the child. The plaintiff claimed that amputa tion was rendered necessary by reason of the application of the bandages so tightly that mortification ensued. The defendant, on the other hand, claimed that the dressings were pampered with which rendered amputa tion necessary. Hon. A. P. Gould of Tliorn aston, brought the suit, and Hon. A. G. Jewett of Belfast, defended Dr. Albee. The case has been carried to the law court by the defendant. The Maine Standard in reviewing that (to it) very melancholy topic of the last Presi dential campaign, attempts to account for the rout of tho Democracy on various grounds, among whiAi was a general brow-beating and system of threatening by which scores of Be publicans who desired to support the Liberal movement or wavered in their old party alle giance were brought into line. In a tearful, pathetic way, the Standa d relates an inci dent of a poor man who early espoused the “new faith’’ and was eager to do service un der its banner. All at once he lost his zeal, and being called to book by a Democrat, said that he had lost a son in the army, in conse quence of which he was now receiving a pen sion that was his main-dependence for sup port, but he had been threatened, by no less a man than a Congressman, that if he voted the Democratic ticket the pension would at once be cut off. We cannot relate the affect ing interview between the persecuted convert and the old-liner, so full of gusli, regret and anguish, which resulted in the member of the old guard advising the former to yield to radical outrage and vote as ordered. Now we submit if the author of this affect ing story is not presuming vastly too much on the gullibility of the public when he makes the statement that a Congressman would have the audaudty to make such a threat, or that there is in Maine a man of the intelligence that the Standard would have us believe the party it conjures up has, could be so silly as to be frightened by sncli a foolish threat,such a pension terminating only with the death of the recipient. While the Standard was prowling about the realms of fancy for a case of outrage on the part of the dominant partv, Why did it not state something withiu the range of probability, for instance, that the thieving radicals had threatened to steal the poor man’s last bee hive, or gird'e his only Summer Sweeting apple tiee, or shave his horse’s tail, or double his poll tax, or send dogs to kill his sheep,, or call his daughter ugly, or that they would send the Indians af ter mm, ui tuc wwnu ^ short, most any probable or possible thing that could annoy or terrify an innocent, pure minded old farmer, benighted by reading the weekly Tribune twenty years? If the Standard bad only given some case like the above, its dreary bathos might have invoked tears where now there is nothing but com passion for its lack of jndgment in putting up its little story. Dnmiaion Matters. The opposition in the Dominion parliament elaim a victory over the government in a re cent vote on an election case from the fact that a ministerial motion was defeated by a majority of four. Fortunately for Sir John A. Macdonald and his government tbeie are no measures pending where the real strength of his ministry can be tested. It having been stated by the London agent of the Toronto Globe that Mr. Potter Presi- 1 dent of the Gran 1 Trunk, while in Canada i last season, was frequently urged to give the influence of the corporation to support the Macdonald ministry in the then pending elec tions, the Dominion Premier in parliament t e other night read a telegram from Presi dent Potter denouncing the statement as ab solutely untrue. Last week the local assembly after a long and somewhat bitter discussion passed the bill incorporating «the Oraugeme,’. M* tionof Eastern Ontirioto a third Hading. The oath of the organization pledges the members to support Queen Victoria so long ■is she deleuds the Protestant religion, to ever reverence the name King William III, Prince of Orange, and celebrate his victory over Janies at the Boyne each 12th of July, nor to marry a Papist or support their schools. The anti-Macdonald papers in the Domiu ion are striving to prejudice the people of the lm)' inees against the building of the Canada Pacific Railroad on the ground that the or ganization is under the control of parties liv ing in the United States and will if built be diverted to the interests of this country. On Monday the Dominion Parliament con sidered a large number of petitions for a pro hibitory liquor law and referred tTieui to a spe cial committee to report by bill or otherwise. Some very able speeches were made, and all the speakers agreed that it was a most important subjeet. Mr. Bodwell show ed that no less than 12,076,335 gallons of .nirimmis liquors were used in the Dominion annually or more than three gallons to each inhabitant. A Petty Swindle. Mrs Margaret W. Campbell in a letter to the Woman's Journal gives the iollowing in cident which may be of use to women who are not familiar with all the disabilities which appertain to their sex. We took the cars on the Maine Central road, at Bangor, on Thursday morning, Feb. 27tli. While we were waiting in the car for the train to start, a young man with a busi ness air, book and pencil in hand, came through the car to sell Accident Insurance policies, reading as he walked along the conditions, which were, besides the amount paid in case of accident, resulting in the death of the insured, a specified sum called indemnity for want of time in case of accident not resulting in death. A lady in the next seat said she would be insur ed tor four days, and the ageut proceeded to make out her policy and she to count out the money. When the busiuess was nearly con cluded, I turned and said to her, “You will get nothing for your time if you meet with an accident. Insurance companies pay women only when they are killed.” She turned to the ageut and asked if that was the case. He replied that it was true of all Insurance com panies. The reason he gave was that all wo men are supposed to be provided for, and their time ot little consequence. The lady re plied that that was just what she wished to be insured for; her time was of consequence to her, while she cared nothing for the mon ey that would be paid to her relatives after she was dead. So the money was uot paid over for an accident insurance. The agent leftthe car, finding his business ruined for that time. No doubt the same thiDg is being done every day in hundreds of depots and cars, and therefore I mention this instance, hoping to but women on their guard against such swindlers. Lectche Cocuse at Alfed.—An Alfred correspondent writes us the following respect ing its successful lecture course: Our course is now complete. We have abundance of snow here yet, but we have not been once disappointed of our lecturer by de tained trains, and have had better attendance than last winter. J H. Goodale. Esq., of Nashua, gave us a “Yisit to Alaska” out of his owu experience for our first lecture. He exhibited curiosities from that new right arm of our couutry, and he made us feel Tlje zero chills from that quar ter by bis vivid picture. Rev. J. D. Emerson of Biddeford, mustered spunk enough to ride up on a very cold day and deliver a lecture on “spunk”. We con cluded if he does as well at. home in nmetioiner what he preaches his sermons will do his peo ple as much good asjtis lecture did us. Our good Methodist minister, Rev. C. Hun ger, gave us our third lecture—“To London and Back-’ -aud was complimented with a large audience. Rev. H. M. Stone o{ Rochester, told us about the “Push and Pull” of the world, aud we felt quite sure when he closed that there was much of it everywhere and in everthing—not a little in the speaker. Rev. S. Baker of Lowell told us about some of the “Many holes in a Skimmer”, in other words the leaky plans in society. But his lecture was not like a broken cistern which could hold no water. We all drank from it, were filled and iutoxicated. Hon. C. P. Kimball of your city gave us our last lecture Thursday evening. Our hall was full, for eveiybod.v wanted to hear Mr. K. We had ridden safely in his honestly made carriages aud knew we should get nothing short of honest convictions from his liberal heart. It was now the more enjoyable to ride with him over the “Past, present and future of Maine.” Our lectures have been a great success and we herewith desire to express our thanks to those above named who so highly favored us. Zell's New Descriptive Hand-Atlas op hie Would, arranged and edited by John Bartholomew, LL. D., is now nearly completed; therefore, its whole design and execution can be fairly estimated. The style of engraving and coloring is far superior and different from any issued heretofore in the United States. The comparative importance of the various towns are further indicated on the maps by the char acter of lettering employed. In Addition to the statistical information contained in the letter press which accompanies each map, it may be stated that the Atlas presents the results of the most recent discovery, and embraces the latest territorial changes throughout the world, as will be found on the maps of Europe, France and Germany. The handy- size of the work is greatly in its favor; so also is the exceeding low price of 50 cents a part. Forwarded by mail by T. (Ellwood Zell, 17 aud 19 South Sixth Street, Philadelphia, or any of his agents throughout the country. Vessels’ Manifests.—Barque Eliza White, of Portland, from Cardenas for New York, put into Savannah in distress on the 5th inst. It seems that the Captain in making up his man ifest neglected to enter upon it his sea stores, thinking it not required by the regulations, as his vessel was not bound for that port but for New York. On this point the Custom House offioers differed with him, and the mat ter was referred to the Secretary of the Treas ury. We were yesterday shown a letter from the Secretary, in which he states that in all cases the manifest must show the sea stores as well as the cargo. We understand thlt the fine will ba remitted in this case, as the violation occurred from no desire oreffortontbe part of the captain to evade or disregard the Cus toms’ regulations.—Savannah Bulletin of Mon day. ___ Fire and Distressing Circumstances.— A distressing case of fire occurred at Tracadie, Prince Edwards Island, Monday. The house of Joseph McAuley, a laborer, took fire, while he and his wife were absent. The ODly in mates were three children, the eldest about six years old and the youngest about three months old. The eldest had snatched the baby from its bed, and carried it out. When the neighbors arrived they found it in a perfect state of nudi ty. Not a rag was saved from the bnilding. Religious Interest in Bath.—Zion's Her ald, gives the details of the remarkable revival which has been in progress in Bath, Me., since the week of prayer. The work has been ac companied with the most cordial feeling be tween the different denominations, who have worked iu unison. The revival has been mark ed by an entire absence of undue excitement, and at the close of the-tenth week showed no abatement. In the Wesley Church the conver sions number 300, and other churches have been blessed in the same manner. The Court Street Baptisl Church, Auburn, received 26 new members at its last communion. , The Grand Trunk.—The Bethel eorres pvuucui ui ure .aureniser says: The Grand Trunk Ratlroad is a treacherous road just now. Trains have been off the tracks every day this week During the night last 1 nday, ten cars got off just above this place . We understand 0*pt. Walker who was in jured at the collision, last Tuesday, is better and that his recovery is hoped for. * News and Other Items A. H. Stephens, one of the heavy men of the next Congress, weighs 91. Halifax has just introduced the fire alarm telegiaph into the Dominion. Col. Anna Dickinson is the way the lady is advertised in Georgia. St. Louis is the fifth city in the Union that has concluded to rely on the honesty of a Com mittee of Seventy. One of the successful applicants for schools in Alleghany County, Penn., is a woman sev enty-thr^e years of age. A marble statue of Benjamin Franklin is amoug the unclaimed articles advertised for sale by the Collector of New Orleans. Queen Victoria, says a recant letter, is grow ng gray and feeble, and shuns society more han she • ver did. The Secretary of War goes West, it is said, vith the laudable desire “to ascertain the cause if the troubles between the Iudiaus and the [overnment.” A selfish California minister recently refused o perform the marriage service for a couple * vhere the bride was his own absconded wife, s \nd that aggravating woman said that he|was 1 ‘just as mean as he always used to he.” The uudaunted perseverance of the mule has e igain been exemplified by four of them, late of 0 tentucky. They refused to look out for the ' ocomotive engine, and were disposed of accord- | ngly. < " , ,%e Twelve of the eighty-five young doctors Just graduated at Aun Harbor are women. Of the 120 lawyers who got their degrees, only two were women. Of these 12 female doctors two are to go to China as missionaries. Tbo question, ‘‘Was John Wesley a bad hus band?” is settled by a correspondent of a Phil adelphia paper, who gives ?lie authority of “an eye witness.” that Mrs. Wesley used to indulge in the luxury of dragging her husband round the room by the hair of his head. A St. Louis constable levied upon the dinner nrepared for oue of the hotels, and 150 hungry guests, against whom he barred the doors of the dining-room, are loud in their denuncia* tions of him. The Elmira Advertiser complains of a merci less clergyman who lately drove a five-year-old mare from his house in Jefferson County, to his father’s house in Huron, Wayne County, a distance of ninety-two miles, in ten hours and a half. It is estimated that fifty thousand persons have visited Florida during this season, and have spent in the aggregate about five millions of dollars. The circulation of this vast sum of money has infused a new life into business in that State. The Utica Herald reports that the snow storm of last Wednesday night Was oue of the sever est of the winter in that locality. Steam cars were delayed and blocked, and horse cars were run culy with the aid of four horses and twenty men to each car. A Pennsylvania woman, who leaped upward to haug au article of clothing upon a hook in tlie ceiling of the kitchen, caught a ring on one of her fingers in the hook, and hung there, her feet not touching the floor. Her eries brought assistance, and she was released, painfully wrenched, but not seriously harmed. Ex-Gov. Wm. T. Minor, in his letter accept ing the Republican nomination for Congress in the Fourth District of Connecticut, says that, in his judgment, the back-salary grab by the last Congress is “the most alarming as well as the most immoral act ever carried into effect by any legislative body in tne country.” The statistics of the Order of Red Men i u Peunsylvania show that there are 102 tribes in the State, comprising 15,792 members. Of these there are 16 Past Grand Sachems and 1358 Past Sachems. The deathsjin the Order recorded for the fiseal year are 124. The re ceipts of all the tribes, $102,332.82. There are yet some peculiarities in Iudiana divorce. A woman lately died while her ap plication for judicial separation was pending in Court. Thereupon her husband went round with a subscription paper stating that his wife died, and that he was very poor, and wanted to raise $50 to givp her a respectable burial. He raised the $50 and bought a new suit of clothes with it. STATE ‘NEWS. ANDROSCOGGIN COUNTY. The Lewiston Journal reports a number of sudden cases of lung fever, and one fatal case in Auburn. Lewiston expects quite a colonv of English men now en route from Liverpool. The Lewiston Journal says that A. C. Frost.of Wales, sold in that market last week a carcass of mutton weighing 100 pounds. The fleece weighed 24 pounds. The fleece and mutton sold for nineteen dollars—the mutton selling at 14 cents per pound.

The Bangor Whig says that on Thursday evening two unknown men attacked Joseph Baker, a young man residiug with Capt. Hor ace Atwood of Hampden, as he was returning from a meeting, and robbed him of his coat, wallet and watch. They also pulled off one of his boots and threw it away, so he could not find it, and then jumping into a sleigh in which a confederate was waiting, they drove off. Young Baker is lame and can ill afford to lose so much, and we hope the authorities, who have taken the matter in charge, will succeed iu capturing the ruffians who robbed him. A military company was organized in Dexter about forty years ago, called the “Dexter Rifles,” numberingfifty-five men. One year since there were still living forty-five of the original members of the company. Several died during the past year, but about forty are dow living. This is a case of longevity worthy of note. Over 150 men are employed ill grading the road bed of the Bangor & Bucksport railroad, between Mill Creek and Bucksport.

A coroners’ jury in the case of Mrs. Canuey, who was found frozen to death near her house in Berwick, found a verdict that she died from exposure by wandering from home w hile under the influence of liquor. A Triumphant Record. In glancing back at the history of proprietary med icines in this country, it becomes at once evedent that Hostctter’s Stomach Bitters lias been the most BUCC ssful of them all. The record of its triumphs covers a period of about twenty years, and during lhat time it has probably restored to health and vig >r a greater number of debilitated invalids than all ithor tonics and alteratives combined. The iiuount of disease and saBering lhat has been pre rented by its extendsive use as a preventive medicine h, oi course unascenamaoie, out it is a well Known md undisputed fact that the malaria which gener ites periodic fevers and many other distressing and langerous disorders seldom, if ever, produced any ojurious, effect upon systems that liavo been fortifl d in advance by a course of this invaluable vegetable onic.

Sometimes medicines that will stop a cough will of ten occasion the death of the patient. It locks up the liver, stops the circulation of the blood, hemorrhage follows, and, in (act, clogging the action of the very organs that caused the cough. Liver complaint and dyspepsia arc the causes of two-thiids of the cases of consumption. Many are now complaining with dull pain in the side, the bow els sometimes costive and sometimes to loose, tongue coated, pain in the shoulder blade, feeling sometimes very restless, and at other times drowsy; the food that is aken lies heavily on the stomach, accompani ed with acidity and belching of wind. These symp toms usually originate irorn a disordered condition of the stomach or a torpid liver. Persons so affected, if they take one or two heavy colds, and if the cough in these cases be suddenly stopped, the lungs, Uyer and 6tomach clog, and remain torpid and inactive, and before the patient is aware of his situation, the lungs are a mass of sores, and ulcerated, and death is the inevitable result. Schenck’s Pulmonic Syrup is an expectorant which does not contain any opium, nor any tiling calculated to check a cough suddenly. Schenck’s Seaweed tonic diss* v the food, mixes with the gastric juice of the sto acli, digests easily, nourishes the system, and create a healthy circula tion of the blood.
