BEFORE JUDGE MORRIS. Saturday.—Mary McCarty alias Anule Htrnan.— Intoxication. Fined $5 with costs. Brief Jottings. The annual meeting of the Mercantile Libra ry Association takes place the 8th inst., and no; the 3d as has been advertised. The Boston & Maine have adopted the Smith vacuum brake aud the Miller platform ou all thiir passenger trains, and promise a half hour shortening between this city and Boston. The Musical Club will give a Concert the Tuesday after Easter. Friday brought the usual quota of accideuts to the Grand Trunk. Dupres & Benedict appear at City Hall the 7th inst. The City Clerk united in bonds of matrimo ny on Saturday a couple who possessed eleven names between them. Be sure to read the notice of the Aunual meeting of the Merchants’ Exchange which occurs to-day at noon. A’ the Meeting of the First Parish Church Society this afternoon, the letter of Dr. Hill, accepting the pastorate of the church, will be read, The Enquirer, successor and sole legatee of the Riverside Echo, has suspended publication. Charles P. Kimball, Esq., lectures at Bethel to-morrow on the Past, Present and Future of Maine. If a man now tells you that Spring has come, you will not be justified in branding him as a liar. The storm of Saturday night changed all that. Men about town are offering bets that games of base ball can be played in this city on Fast Day. See what a big cloud brought forth. The Grand Trunk steamship train did not arrive until two o’clock Sunday morning. It was delayed by the storm. People are beginning to enjoy their regular Sunday drunks once more, as the records at the police station testify. It is to be classed, we suppose among the sweet influences of Spring. Bradford’s boom broke during the storm Saturday night, aud yesterday morning the harbor was full of floating spars. Were it not for colds in the head, men might now sing of etherial mildness with some grace. The woedeu pavement in front of City Hall is about bare; which, as far as it goes, demon strates that wooden pavements are good things. A blustering, drenching rain storm occurred Saturday night. It was evidently a misplaced “line storm” suddenly cut short. It caused the rapid disappearance of a large quantity of snow, A little newsboy thrust his proboscis into a store door in Clapp’s block on Saturday after uood, and asked “Have the State please?” “No boy, I am not Mrs. Thurston” said the pretty yiunggirl. The new policemen go into commission to m irrow. There were three arrests for drunkenness and disturbance yesterday. Church Notes.—Rev. James De Normandie Portsmouth, officiated at the First Parish Jisterday. Rev. John O. Fiske of Bath, delivered pow erful and interesting discourses at Plymouth Church yesterday. Rev. Mr. Quinh\, editor of the Qospel Ban ner, officiated at the India Street Universalist Church yesterday. Rev. C. B. Pitblado of the Congress Street M. E. Church, delivered a very powerful sermon to a large audience yesterday. Rev. Dr. Sawyer of Tuft’s College officiated yesterday at Congress Square Church, and de livered a very able instructive and interesting discourse upon the supernatural character of Christ and Christianity, as opposed to the ra tionalistic views of many at the present day. olnmn» knll i ., • Raymond's dancing academy, takes place at Lancaster flail to night, A very pleasant time is anticipated. Special Providences.—A small hoy iif town was recently telling his younger brothel of God’s goodness; and in illustration thcreoi adduced the experience of Jonah and the whale. “D’you spose if I should fall over board a whale would pick mo up?” doubtingly queried the younger. “Oh yes! same as he did with Jonah,” was the unhesitating reply. “But what if it was iu the middle of the Atlantic ocean, would the whale take me up and bring me to Fish Point?” “'Well,” was the auswei of the young and sanguine theologian, “Per haps the whale wouldn’t take you, but God would get you out of the scrape somehow.” 8teamer Movvmens.—The steamship Peru viau sailed at 2.30 p. m. yesterday, carry ill; eleven cabin and eighteen steerage passengers. The Carlotta and the New Brunswick sailei yesterday morning. The New York arrived a S o’clock Death of an Esteemed Citizen,—Hun ’ dreds of bur people will be pained to learn that William L. Wilson, Esq., a merchant so loug ■ and so favorably known in this city, died in Santa Barbara, California, last Saturday. For several years Mr. Wilson has been far from be I ing a well man and his health has been gradu ally failing until about six weeks since he was r obliged to relinquish his place in the business and seek recovery. To this end, with his wife he left for California about three weeks ago, hoping that such a change of climate would re store his health. A letter written by him to Mr. Stockman, his partner and received but a day before bis death was announced, stated that he was improving. , , , . No particulars have been received of the im mediate cause of his death but it is supposed that it must have resulted from a severe at tack of which he has had several, the disease from which he has been suffering for years be ing chronic dyspepsia. I Mr. Wilson was bom iu Topsliam, and at the time of his death was between 48 and 50 years of age. He came to Portland in 1839 and was employed several years as a clerk with N. L Purriutou, comer of Exchange and Congress streets. Iu 1844, he begau business for himself iu the provision line, his store being located in West Market row. He continued in this busi ness until the fire after which he came down town and taking the store 85 Federal street changed his business to that choice line of gro ceries for which he became so well known and in which ho has secured one of the largest trades iu the State. About a year ago, wi th Mr. F. W. Stockman as partner, he moved to the present spacious stores at the corner of Fed eral and Exchange streets. Air. \v lison lias Deeu so wen Known hi iiiosi of our readers that any extended notice is un necessary. By strict integrity, a thorough knowledge of his business, by a disposition to oblige all his patrons and particularly avoiding those tricks of trade that are called “smart,” he has built up a reputation that might well be regarded as a fortune to a business man. Mr. Wilson was a member of the Plymouth (Congregational Church) aud leaves a wife aud three sons. His remains will be brought to this city for buriel. The last funeral rites were performed ou Sat urday over the remains of a little girl of this city who was very lovely and pure minded in life, and was still beautiful in death. The cas ket in which she was placed was so simple, ap propriate and novel, that it seems to deserve es pecial mention. It was made of ordinary but durable wood, covered with fine white broad cloth, lined with thibet of the same color, and open full length. Ou the cover and sides panels were formed of silver strips with ornamented mitre joints, and heavy silver bandies. The floral contributions of sympathizing friends were numerous and beautiful. We understand that to the good taste of Messrs. S. S. Rich & Son are the friends under obligations for the preparation of tl e beautiful casket, relieved as it was of some of the former repulsive appoint ments for the dead. We might add that a white pall on which was a cross in purple, so appropriate for a child, was thrown over the casket supports. * ’ - " "* A Dull Day.—A dull day is the dread of the “local” and the cause of no little profanity on the part of the average newspaper reader, who feels himself defrauded of his diurnal dish of startling items. But did our reapers ever reflect what a dull day meaus? It means that the world, on our segment of it, has been unusually good; that it has refrained from murder, or ar son, or highway robbery, or any of the more patent crimes; that if it has not accomplished much good, it has at least refrained from doing much evil. It is not a whit better, probably, than it was the day betore, but it makes a vast more respectable appearance; and wa pre of opinion that the whited sepulchre is incompara bly pleasanter to look at than the undisgu ised charnal house. No news, in this instance, is good news. Love Letters.—It will be noticed that a lec ture on the above subject is to be given next Wednesday evening, by the Rev. C. B. Pitbla do, at City Hall. It is a novel subject for a lecture but one we all have been or should be in some degree acquainted with. It is a matter of conjecture how it will be treated, though we have no donbt it will be brought out in ail its beauty and depth by this talented or ator. The reverend gentleman, though being as yet little known in Maine, has already ac quired an euviable reputation as an cloqunet speaker. The leading journals in New Bruns wick and Nova Scotia, where he has been for some years, speak of a lecture upon this sub ject in the most extravagant and flattering manner, and we predict a crowded hall and a rich feast for all who shall attend. * Is Reply.—We have no desire to enter into controversy with the Aryiis correspondent, who alliteratively accuses us of covering a c.rpse with a Custom House plaster. Our report was based on the researches of Coroner Gould, who is not a man to lie influenced in the discharge of duty by Custom House or other officials.— Air. Gould always makes a thorough investi gation, and if any two-headed dogs bad been traveling about ho would have known it. Orphan Asylum.—A concert in aid of the projected Catholic Orphan Asylum will be giv en at City Hall on the 22d inst. Yesterday morning Bishop Bacon delivered a sermon in which be urged the importance nnd benefits of the project upon his hearers. The Asylum building, which is to be a substantial, conven ient and fine looking edifice, will probably be erected on the vacant lot near the Episcopal res idence. Sacc.iBAfpa.—Rev. G. P. Stearns, mission ary of the New Jerusalem Church, will com mence a course of lectures at Saccarappa, on religious subjects, April 3d. Air. Stearns gave a lecture a few weeks since on the “Flood,” which elicited much interest; and at the re quest of some of his hearers the subject will be continued, and followed by kindred topics. Anniversary.—To-day is the 23th anniver sary of the advent of modern Spiritualism in the United States. It will be observed by the assemblage of the Spiritualist Associations of this city at Army and Navy Union Hall this evening at 7.30 o’clock. The exercises will con sist of addresses, Sc. All interested in Spiritu alism are invited to attend. Yocno Women’s Home—The Young Wo men’s Christian Association are now ready to receive proposals from those who have houses for sale. The committee who have the matter in charge consists of Mrs. Avah Conant, Airs W. S. Dana, Mrs. George Burnham, Airs. J. O. Brown, and Airs. A. A. Strout. Playing with Edged Tools.—A boy about twelve years old, named Chambers, had his hand cut yesterday while squabbling with a comrade on Centre street. He attempted to wrestle and to hold an open jack-knife at the same time. The result was the cut, a trifling one, on the back of his hand. Ferry Village. As every community has some especial event to mark the passage of time, which serves in a measure to break up the monotony that is apt a. aa in o T'ill 1 <ra Wu if tlin k'oviM were favored with a school meeting last Friday evening. As this is the largest school district in town in point of numbers, the ablest men are sought after to fill the several offices. A. Y. Cole, who has filled the office as agent ac ceptably for tbe past year, submitted the fol lowing report; Whole number of scholars in the district GOO; to cash by appropriation §1, 478.70; there has been expended the past year §1426.70; balance on baud §52. The teachers em ployed were W. H. Marrett, Mrs. E. P. Wel don, Miss Julia Boltenliouse and Miss M. M. Hannaford. During the year there were three sessious of schools of three months each. The schools were divided into four departments, viz: Primary, Intermediate, Grammar and High School. The teachers in the different de partments have given a gooddegiec of satisfac ■ tion to both parents and pupils. In concluding his report, Mr. Cole thanked the citizens who had been so untiring in their efforts to advance the cause of education, and had lent their pres ence in the school rooms on so many occasions inspiring the scholars to a more vigorous appli cation to study; aud also tho District Commit tee, whose untiring efforts aud timely sugges tions had contributed in no small degree in bringing our district schools up to their present standing. Mr. Cole retires with the best wish es of this people, expressed by a vote of tl anks The officers elected for the ensuing year are William Calef, Agent; N. B. Knight, Clerk; G. F. Henley, Dr. J. W. Lowell and John Brewer, jr., District Committee. Mr. Calef is a man that enjoys the confidence of this whole community, and takes a lively interest in the cause of education. The committee are men of marked literary ability, and we feel proud to be ^ able to record that the educational interest of ■ this village is intrusted to such good hands. A. Fryrburg.

I.ife Insurance. “Tontine” Life Insurance is believed and de clared to be one of the greatest humbugs of modern times, by the ablest actuaries in the country. Commissioner Paine of this State has the same opinion- and so have the men most conversant with it throughout the coun try. And so will any person who will examine it intelligently, notwithstanding the quota tions from New York and Boston papers writ ten for those papers and paid for by interested parties.

Concord, March 30.—Mary Shattuck of Nashua, an insane woman, jumped from an open window at the Insane Asylum here yes terday, and received injuries' from which she died this morning. Fires. The old town house atHopkintou was burned this morning between one and two o clock. It was a court house wheu Hillsborough and Mer riinac counties wire one, and has lately been occupied on tue nrst floor as a town house ana above as an academy. Loss $3000; no insur ance. Portsmouth, March 29.—The grocery store of Nathaniel Batchelder, at North Hampton, was burned last evening. Loss about $25,000; insured for $1400.

B. Foss with a pick, was arraigned before the po lice court this morning, pleaded not guilty, and was held in $10,000 bail for one week, the gov ernment not being ready to prosecute. He will be able to obtain bail and the case may possibly show a long existence of ill-feeling between the parties. Foss was represented to be in a dangerous condition. NEW YORK. The Postal Car Question. New York, March 29.—S. L. M. Barlow stated last evening that Erie had refused to join the other roads in the postal car matter, simply to avo;d aunoyiug the public, and not because they thought the present compensation just. Postmaster'General Creswell stated to a correspondent at Washington last evening, that the statements that there would be no increase of rates paid for postal cars, were untrue. Un der the act passed last session, there will be an increase next year of $500,009, and as soon as the roads can perfect the system and have six teen additional cars, the increase will amount to $800,000. The New Charter. Inasmuch as the Senate is about evenly divid ed on the question of giving the whole appoint ing power to the Mayor, and neither party dis posed to recede, the opinion now prevails at Al bany that there will be no new charter for New York passed this session. Arrest of Notorious Thieves. Three notorious thieves, Wes. Allen, Mart Allen, and Henry Willey alias “Shorts,” were arrested early this morning by officers Jackson andMaloney.The prisoners had burglars' instru ments in their possession. Mart Allen threw red nepper in the eyes of officer Maloney and escaped, but was recaptured by that officer af ter a stubborn resistance, during which Allen received a severe clubbing. Wes Allen recently escaped from Sing Sing where he has an unex pired term of one year yet to serve. The Labor Interest. The carpenters, stone-cutters and other trades had meetings last evening to discuss the siua tion and arrange for interviews with employ ers before striking. No disturbances are re ported. Compromise Respecting Postal Cars. A compromise was arrived at to-day in the postal car trouble, the companies agreeing to run the cars till a special committee of the Sen ate shall have reported on their demands. A joint letter to this effect was sent to the Post master General, signed by Connelius Vander bilt, S. Watson, W. D. Bishop and others. Various matters. The police refused her lawyer permission to see Mrs. Meyers, Goodrich’s suspected murder er. George William Curtis continues to steadily improve. He has had to abandon all his lec ture engagements. General Jones, the retiriug Postmaster, has refused anv testimonial from the emnW*.. A statement has been sent to the Erie Inves tigating Committee that the road charges one million dollars per annum for two daily milk trains, the expenses of running which does not exceed one hundred thousand. Alonzo Stevens of Boston was arrested here yesterday for disorderly conduct on the charge of a stage driver with whom be had an alterca tion. The Court discharged Stevens on the ground that the charge was frivolous. The family of Charles Viele was recently rob bed of $30U0 worth of jewelry, by a thief, at the Fifth Avenue Hotel. No arrests. Mrs. Burnett was arrested to-day as acccsso ry the murder of Mrs. Kerwiu. The Goodrich Harder. New Yore, March 30.—The Mercury pub lishes a letter from Baltimore which says the police of that city are in search of a Spaniard named Roscoe, tho alleged murderer of Charles Goodrich in Brooklyn and the lover of I.ucette J. Myers, now uuder arrest. The Mercury gives the following story: Be fore becoming acquainted with Goodrich, Lu cette was intimate with the Spaniard Roscoe; finding that Goodrich was possessed with am ple means, and that his assertions of owning houses in Brooklyn, were correct, she forsook Roscoe for him. After removing to Rivingtou street Roscoe was unable at first to fiud I.u cette, but intimately discovered her and Thurs day night he watched as she started for Brook lyn ana tracked her to Goodrich's house in De graw street. He sought for a way to enter,and after repeatedly traversing vacant lots at the rear of the house he climbed over a fence and obtained entrance to the building by a back basement, lifting the latch with the jagged lack-kinfe found on the floor. When in the nouse lie closed the shutters and went to a room 'u,'iCh .were Goodrich and Lucette.

WASHINGTON. The Postal Service and the Rail roads. Important tluestions Asked by the Postmaster Oeueral. Peaceful Indians. Washington, Mareli 29.—The following is received here: Red Cloud Agency, Wyoming Territory, Mar. 20 —To the Commissioner of Indian Affairs. Washington, D. C —Sir: I would respectfully inform the Department that Lone Antelope, one of the hostile chiefs of the Muneconyons band of Sioux, with 75 lodges, is reported to have just gone in camp on the White river with the Sioux of this agency; also that Sit ting Bull, No Neck aud Four Horns, chiefs of the Dnepapa hand of hostile Sioux are in camp at Bear Butt, four days march from here, ou their way to this place. Sitting Bull and his party remained there to hear from these In dian's. I have sent them tobacco and clothes, asking them to come in and assuring them of the good will of the government. It seems ad visable that steps should be taken to secure the friendship of these people, considering their importance in connection with the Northern Pacific Railroad. Very respectfully, J. W. Daniels, U. S. Indian Agent. In opposition to the statement m ide in com munications published in the Philadelphia pa pers in behalf of railroad companies participat ing in the present war upon the postal service, to the effect that none of the companies who iiave provided and run postal cars have hereto fore received a dollar more of compensation ou that account, the Postmaster General shows in a letter this day addressed to the Attorney Gen eral, that in cases in which the utmost limit or compensation fixed by law had not been reach ed, the Department has paid additional rates ranging from $1000 to $2*00 per mile per an num for cars of this description, running one a day in each direction, and that these additional rates have generally been readily and some times eagerly accepted by the railroad compa nies; that some have voluntarily offered to pro vide and run such cars in advauce of any ap plication or suggestion on tne pari oi me *** partment, and with a full knowledge of rates paid for similar services whenever performed at the Department's request. The post office appropriation act, passed at the late session ot Congress, allows compensation and rates rang ing from $25 to $50 per mile per annum for postal cars running once a day each way and does away with the restriction whereby, unaer previous laws, roads receiving the highest rates of pay were prevented from receiving any ad ditional compensation on account of running postal cars. „, _. . The Postmaster General in his letter, pro pounds several very important interrogations referring to companies who threaten to with draw the postal cars on the first of April. He says: The ronds they contro1 are centering at New York, the great commercial emporium of the country; the point to and from which the larges proportion of mail communication of the country radiates and converges. The execution of their threat would entail cousequeuces so se rious that I feel constrained to inquire whether the government in its management of the im mense postal interests of the citizens in whose behalf it acts, can be thus at the mercy of the corporations or parties like these by whom this menace is offered, or whether, under the laws declaring all railroads, post roads, and making it the duty of the Postmaster General to pro vide for the carrying of the mail on all post roads or under any other law or laws, the gov ernmet possesses sufficient power or can have recourse to suitable means to protect the im portant interests entrusted to its custody, aud thus imperilled. Will you, therefore, be pleas ed at the earliest moment practicable, commun icate to me your opinion on the points herein after named, to wit: , First. If railroad companies refuse to carry over their roads the mails of the United States and agents in charge thereof lor the compensa tion prescribed by law, has the government, as represented by the Post Offico Department, the right and is its duty to convey mails and agents in eare of its own over said roads? Second. If railroad companies offer to carry as mere freight or baggage, and refuses to pro vide suitable post cars and to trasport such agents or clerks as may be necessary to take charge of and distribute said mails, thereby en dangering safety and retarding the distribution and delivery thereof, is it the right and duty i of the government to provide and run upon ! such roads suitable cars for the due distribu- 1 tion and delivery oF said mails? Third. Is it not within the exclusive pon er of tlio Deuartmeut to interpret and enforce the law so far as to determine what is right and proper in the way of accommodations and safe guards for tlie despatch, transportation and dis tribution of mails, and to require a compliance therewith on the pattot railroad companies.' Fourth. Can the Department make other or greater compensation to railroad companies than that presciibed in the act of Congress, March 3, 1873? Fifth. In case the railroad comoanies or any of them shall refuse to provide and run postal cars on their roads as heretofore for the com pensation prescribed by law, advise this De partment as to the extent and nature of its powers under existing legislation to provide against delays, losses and inconveniences re sulting therefrom. Sixth. Has Congress the power, under the Constitution, to coufer upon this Department greater authority aud control over the railroiub of the country in connection with the postal service than that now possessed, and if so, state the extent and scope of the legislative power in that direction. British and American Claims, The Mixed Commission on British aud Amer icau claims disposed of fifteen cases last week, awarding about $50,000. The Commissi an has thus far settled 250 cases, leaving 218 on the d icket, the larger part of which are ready for hearing. Bauds and Cold. The Assistant Treasurer at New York has been directed to purchase $500,000 iu bonds on Wednesday, April 9th and 23d, each, and to sell $1,500,000 gold each Thursday during the month of April, thus purchasing $1,000,000 bonds and selling $0,000,000 of gold. Treasury Balances. The balances in the Treasury to-day were as follows: Currency, $2,818,237; special deposits of legal tenders for the redemption of certifi cates of deposit, $27,885,000; coin, $08,317,279; including com certificates, $23,748,500; out standing legal tenders $358,595,916. THE GREAT STORM. In Virginia. Richmond, March 29.—Special despatches to the Richmond papers from nearly all parts of the State report a storm to-day very general. In the south a gale has been accompanied by hail, snow and rain. All despatches mention more or less damage to property. Terrific Hurricane. Jackson, Miss., March 29.—A terrific gale visited Canton about nine o’clock last night, completely demolishing a -dozen houses and damaging thirty others. One man was killed and a lady severely injured. A heavy freight car was blown a distance of twenty feet off the track. Later —The track of the hurricane was about 100 yards wide. Barns were blown down, and dwellings and fences damaged. The telegraph wires are down, etc. On the Hudson—A Pond Bursts its Bar riers. Albany,N. Y.,March 30.—The Sunday Press gives the following account of the stoim: The river has been closed since the 11th of December last, aud ere many hours elapse must give way to an impetuous flood that is pouring into upon it. A rain storm lias pre vailed almost incessantly for the past twenty four hours, at times in perfect torrents, coming down like a tropical shower. The water in the river is two feet higher than on Saturday morn ing and it is steadily rising. The severe storm is wide in Its range. From the west we learn that the storm is quite as heavy as here, and serious apprehensions are felt for the several bridges along the line of the Central railroad, especially the one at Schenectady. A despatch from our Coxsackie correspondent dated last evening, says a big poud near there burst its bonds aud the streets of the village were overflowed. The occupants of the base ments on Arch street were obliged to flee from their homes at midnight aud a wild scone of tuuiusiuu uucurreu. jlin; poor i amines were Hoeing about seeking shelter, with their little ones in their arms, from the pitiless rain. The water is over the dock at the foot of John street. The Mohawk aud Hudson river! broke away in part after midnight and immense masses of ice have passed over the dam at Troy. The pressure which will follow the movement of the the ice in front of Albany, with the rap id rise of the water, promises to tree the ice at almost any hour. A serious loss must follow this sudden and violent breaking up of the ice in the river. The merchants along the streets in the lower part of Albany have gangs of men at work removing goods to places of safety. Tlie itlodoc War. New 1’ouk, March 29.—A despach from the headquarters of the Peace Commission, March 27th, says some of tlie members complain that they have been prevented by the authorities from holding the interview with Capt. Jack. It is necessary for a full discussion of the mat ters at issue. The Indians assure the inter preters that they will negotiate for peace if they can have their Lost river home. They would conseut to go to Yianax reservation. As yet, however, no effort is made to effect peace on these terms. San Francisco, March 28.—The troops are impaitent at the delay, and want a chance to fight. The opinion prevails that the Modocs will get any chance they want. The whole of Lost river camp has been moved near the lava beds. A Kan Kills his Wife and Bn rns the douse. New York, March 29,—A Columbia, S.

The Animal University Race, ; Cambridge Wins in Three Lengths Great Crowd, in Attendance at the Bare. London, March 29.—The race between the Uxfordland Cambiidgc boat crews is to take place this afternoon on the Thames. There is great excitement here and business is almost entirely neglected. The people are now leaving the city in great crowds in order to seenre elig ible positions. There is a dense fog this morn

ing, but it will probably lift before tlie start. It is the general impression that tlie Cambridge crew will be the victors, and the betting is two to one in their favor. 1.30 p. in.—The weather is warm and delight ful. The fog lias cleared, and the sun is shin Sn<r Kfirrlltlll TUn liettinn S.1 nniw mean £..__ ble for the Oxford crew. The crowd is reported as unprecedented. Both shores of the river are lined wi h people from Putney to Mortlake, and the bridges crossing that stream are pack ed. The Thames, Conservancy, press and po lice boats have arrived at Putney and the river is being cleared for the race. Light and dark blue hunting, the colors of the Cambridge and Oxford crews respectively, is displayed from all quarters. The dark blue is the favorite The Oxford crew was out in the morning prac ticing, but the Cantabs have not been seen to day. [second despatdh.

The Cambridge crew are again the favorites. The fog has entirely lilted, aud there is every prospect for a magnificent day. The boats are takiug their positions already for the start. [third despatch.] London, March 29.—4.30 p. m.—The race took place over the usual course from Putney to Mortlake, a distance of four miles and two furlongs. The start was effected at thirty one miuutes past two o’clock. The Cambridge took the lead immediately at a very rapid stroke and were a fair distance ahead of their competitors to Bishop’s Creek, three furlongs from the starting point. Here the Oxfords started vigorously and drew up passing the Cantabs at the soap works, a mile and four furlongs from Aqueduct Bridge. The steady stroko of the Cantabs soon after began to tell on their opponents, and in a few moments Cambridge had resumed the lead. The race was practically over at Coruey Reach, Cam bridge thereafter maintaining the lead and winning easily by three lengths. The Oxford crew rowed from thirty-nine to forty-three strokes per minute. Time of race, twenty minutes aud thirty-five seconds. • The War in Spain. THE SEVEREST BATTLE YET. Npnnigh Finances.—Trouble for the Re public. Madrid, March 29.—Seuor Tetuan, Minister of Fioance at the cabinet council yesterday, stated that the finances of the country were in deplorable condition, and warned his colleagues that the Republic could not remain master of the situation unless radical changes were made in the fiscal ministration. The levy of troops on masse in Cataloria and the adjoining provinces to fight the Carlists has so far proved a failure. A deputation from Barcelona demands its postponement, and in sists on the delivery of the 15,000 rifles which the government promised the peoplo of that city. A Retraction. Berlin, March 29.—'The North Gorman Ga zette (ofti ial) to-day makes a retraction of an article it published some time since ridiculing the inaugural address of President Grant, The Gazette says the full text of the address which has now been received from the United States differs iu many respects from the telegraphic summauy published in the German papers on the day after its delivery, and for that reason the journal is led to considerablv modifv . _l. 4.1.„ j_4 • I Barcelona, via London, March 29.—[Herald Special.]—A sharp battle was fought near Vich, in Catalora, 50 miles north of Barcelona, Sunday, Match 23, in which the Government troops were severely handled and beaten by the combined attack of several bands of Car lists under Savallo. A force of 12000 infantry, 00 cavalry and four cannon under the command of Col Veza left Vich, Saturday by the north ern highway to support a convoy of supplies on the mountains on the »v ay to Itipoll. All of the country is mountainous, but the first half of the distance is not difficult, but there being euough of open country near the road to give the troops a chance to defend themselves. Be yond that country is worse; the highway ap proaches the river Ter, a mountain stream run ning through a deep valley road for many miles. In the same valley is often crossed by small tributaries of the Ter, and is overlooked by jutting rocks of the height of San Hippolits and San Lucra. The troops rested Saturday night in the neighborhood of these heights in the open country. In the meantime, intelli gence of their movement was conveyed to Sa vallo the Carlist commander at Catalonia, who was at Manllen, on the river Ter, five miles cast of the heights of San Hippolo, and who sent word during the night to Generab Galce ran, Mirect and Guin commaudiug the forces of the Carlists. Altogether 2000 troeps occu pied the heights of San Hippolo to dispute the passage. Miret was in position at day light while the others slower in their movements followed. The Government troops on Sunday morning resumed their march aud when un der the heights, Miret’s men opened on the cavalry and advance of infantry. Col. Veza supi>osing it was but a small party and would be s uttered by a few shots pushed on but soon found a fire from all sides increasing in sever ity. The Carlists abandoning the protection of the natural defences, assailed the Government troops, but being taught caution by previous losses the fighting became desultory for a time, when the troops seemed to have the way clear At that juncture the other Carlists came u*p aud attacked impetuously, and after a hard tight Galrau fell mortally wounded. The tide turned against the troops who gave way and being pushed hard retired recipitately. En couraged by this the Carlists followed up the advantage. They were checked occasionally at open places by the Government artillery, but as the Carlists could follow behind the hills to points where they commanded the highways and might thus cut off retreat and issolate the columns of the Spanish troops, the command er of the latter did not venture to rely on this advantage but continued to retire until sup ported by reinforcements from the garrison in Vicb, when the Carlists iu their turu retired. The loss can only be guessed at but are much heavier than at any previous collissiou of the belligerents during the war. Galceron was killed. Iiippol, for which place the supplies were intended has since surrendered to the Carlists from Ripoll. The cailists are now marching on Berga, an important stronghold filled with military stores. Berga is the key to Catalona, and was an important point during the 30 years war. Ill view of the force advancing, the garrison will probably abandon the place. Since the appointment of Maldorado as com mander in Navorre, Doroegary has cut the railroad betweeu Pampeluna and Vittoria, blowing up three bridges. Pampeluna is thus likely to beeome untenable and will fall into the hands of the Carlists, who have already soized the stores in the suburbs, Tne plan of the. Carlists is to move by the Arragon and Legue rivers, and occupy the line of the Ebro. Vich and Oerona will be flanked by the capture of Berga. Alleged Illegal Arrest at Ilnnvna.

WILSON’S AMMONIA TED Superphosphate of Lime, AT AUCTION. About a year ago I concluded to sell my Super phosphate of Lime to the formers of New * England in places where it was not known, by aucti n, to the highest bidder, in quantities agreed on beforehand, proposing at the same time to pursue this course year after year, until the formers could become satisfied ot its value to them. I shall make this proposition good. The superphosphate made this year will be more valuable than it was last year. I will publish as heretofore the materials of which It is composed, and the proportions of each, and I will guarantee it to have been so made. I have many letters from formeis who bought at auction last year, thanking mo lor adopting the auc tlonal plan, and soeaking in the highest teims of the results obtained from the use of the fertilizer. I know that the article is a good one, and that it will, in time, as all my other productions have done, win its way to the confidence of the consumer.
