This morning we publish an account of the most appalling calamity at sea that has ever been recorded. The Steamshsp Attentic of the White Star Line, from Liverpool to New York, went ashore ou Meagher’s Head, Cape Prospect, twenty miles from Halifax, at two o’clock Tuesday morning, having on board one thousand men, women and children, only tioo hundred andjijly of whom were sared. Tha other seven hundred and fifty are ' ,c~ time of the remorseless sea. Ananias tike in the Sautli. The utter debauchery of the Tribune and all connected with it is most forci y an painfully illustrated by * letter in the issue of Saturday last from the notorious J. S. Pike, who acquired so unsavory a reputation in connection with our State election of last Fall. This letter is from South Carolina and purports to give some account of tin legisla tureof that State under the following head ings: “SOOTH CAROLINA PROSTRATE—A nr tnu t.KOISLATURE-HUMILIATION OF THE WHITES—THEIR SUBJECTION COMPLETE and hopeless.” The Writer derides the ap pearance of the cilored members, as negroes not as men,—is funny about their clothes and cont-asts them unfavorably with their white antebellum predecessors who are lauded as types of the highest civilisation and culture, while the piesent members are colored men— the color is mentioned throughout as in itsell disgraceful and discreditable—“whose types it would be hard to find outside of Congo; w inse costume, visages, attitudes ar.d ex pression only befit the forecastle of a bi •ca ncer.” Now it is quite possible, nay it is quite cer tain—that the average negro of the south ii inferior in literary acquirements to the aver age master who went to the legislature be fore the war, But the colored people are cul tivating themselves with wonderful rapidity and should receive commendation for theii achievements and encouragement to future endeavor, rather than derfsion and scurrilous revilings for their deficiencies. Criticism ol their manners and conduct in a friendly and h ilpful vein would be proper and useful, bul Buch coarse abuse as is heaped upou them in this precious epistle will arouse only resent ment and a sense of illtreatmeut obstructive to progress. But ibat all this should be allowed in the Tribune—Horace Greeley’s Tribune,—once a tower of strength and encouragement to all attempts for genuine advancement, is a mosi vivid illustration of the utter and deplorable ruin which has fallen upon the moral tone o that, journal, since it has been affected witl: Whltelaw Eeidism. Think of the impossibili ty of Horace Greeley allowing such a lette as the one in question to defile its column two years ago—to say nothing of ten year ago. One blessed compensation in all thi bad business is that the Tribune, in losing it character, loses also its power to harm, am 4* J \JLM\j II UV UU J l/VVU all ItUlllilUI "111! V S.

The wholesale dry goods houses in this city have entered upon a spring trade that prom ises to be the largest by far ever done in the city so far as the extent of the sales are con cerned. We have frequently noticed the growth of this important department of busi ness in Portland and are please! to announci as the result of careful inquiry that the cer tainty for a much larger trade the ensuini year is assured. The growth of this brand of business during the past few years ha been quite surprising and if in any other lc cality would he quoted by local croakei as an evidence of the growth of tb business interests of other places. We ar informed by one concern that in I860 its sale amounted to less than $300,000 while las year good? passed through its hands to tli value of $3,000,000. A few years ago any ex tensive sale of dry goods by Portland dealer to the Dominion provinces would have bcei considered impossible and we doubt not bu what many of our readers will be surprised ti learn that one and perhaps several of ou Portland houses are selliug dry goods to Hal ifax, St.John, and other Dominion parties There are many varieties of the commone grade of goods manufactured in this couutr that can be sold to our Dominion neighbor at better terms than they can import fror England; and as the prices of labor and cor are increasing in that country, thus enhanciu the cost of goods, the list of fabrics that ca be sold to the provinces at lower prices tha they can be imported from England, is raj Idly growing larger. Strange as it may seem goods that are imported to this Dort fror abroad have frequently been sold in the Dc m uion. The energy of our Portland merchants i not only extending their trade in all parts < Maine but has carried it to New Hanjpshir and even to within twenty-five miles of Bos ton, while as the agents of manufactory .1---.- i.Qq been extended to alt pan of the country. In view of the fact that the Portland an Ogdensburg and the Portland and Eochesti Railroads will open opportunities for trad ten fold greater than ate now enjoyed, it i fair to assume that the already prosperot dry goods business, of Portland, witb man others, is still in its infancy. •'_ If the charges made against the managi ment of the Knickerbocker Life Insuranc Company of New York are true, it will l well hereafter for people not to place the full est confidence in the statements of insuranc superintendents or insurance organs in tha locality.

Miss Sabah Axn Heath of Sumner, is a 1 schoolteacher. Leonard H. Maxim Is, or , was, a member of the school committee o Hartford. In 1872 Miss Heath taug it school in Hartford. At the March meeting Mr. , Maxim, who is a man of decided opinions ; and ultra temperance views, in some i i relative to Miss Heath’s seuool sP°k* J" £*' ] cided disapproval of the lady s Pcc ’ i the sum ot which were that she *«* ntox , ieating liquors to excess, taking iel ] school with her and inssructing 1,er J “ I lady pupils never to marry a man u" would pledge himself to have wine furnished for the table every day. In "r!1n jm port the decided Maxim gives It as i= c that “any one is not fit to teach sc oo , can take more whiskey than a temperance mau can walk straight with. ' In passing we cannot but remark that^t cannot possibly be so much agaim' . t]l character that lie or she can f . a large qu mtity ol old rye, character , detrimental to a temperance man s character of Mr. Maxim’s stamp, to frequently attempt the feat and fad. But this is not the end ; Miss Heath esteems herself slandered and brings Mr. Maxim to court, up at Paris last week on a charge of slander. There was the lad. plaintiff, who is represented as being of “preposessing appearance, florid complex ion, jaunty red curls, and generally stylish aspect,” taking notes and suggesting ques tions to her counsel. There was the defend ant, firm of countenance, decided in senti ment and a plain talker, as well as a con scientious man. The young iady testified that she was recovering from a fever when she went to take the school, and took a little California wine by the advice of a physician. The trial was ably conducted on both sides,but that Oxford jury looked at the matter through no such sentimental atmosphere as gallantry, and came to the conclusion that Mr. Maxim did not do a heavy stroks of business in the slander line, in fact he had slandered Miss Heath only to the value of one dollar in legal tender, which verdict carried but twenty-five I cents ui iuc large uni oi costs to till: ueienu aut's account. It is to be hoped that the jury passed round the hat for a collection to defray a part of the bills. One by one the newspapers are breaking the cherished idols of reform to which a great many of us have looked for political salvation; and now the New York Commer cial Advertiser falls upon Mr. Godkin of the Nation who has assumed the severest type of a cynical reformer in the following vigor ous if not “high toned" style: There is no fireside so sacred that his (Godwin’s) malignity will not invade it. There is no public man friendly to Gen. Grant and his Administration, no matter how stainless and pure his character, that th.s viper of the press will not spit his venom ■ at and attempt to traduce. He is relentless and unforgiving to Gen. Grant, and the men who drove him from liis place in the Freed men’s Bureau, tor his malpractices in that most sacred ot all Departmenls of the Gov ernment. Our partiality is not tor scoun drels ; but, if we have a choice, it is not for the white-livered, canting skulking rogue who trades on his pedantry and respectabili ty. They are the most dangerous and de spicable of all rascals. A Lewiston correspondent of the Argus complains that it took thiee times as long to get a car of corn from Portland over the Maine Central, as from Chicago over the Grand Trunk. If this is true, it goes to prove that the headquarters of the Maine Central should he located in this city whera , its principal connections are made with the other roads, and where parties doing busi ness with it would naturally expect to find its principal officers, rather than on one of its I branches, as at the present time. i Under Mayor Medill, the Chicago city gov i ernment is mak'ng great progress in reform i measures. An ordinance has just been passed 1 which provides that policemen who drink at the liquor shops while on duty shall be sum i marily discharged, and the project of shutting up grog shops during the night after certain hours, is favorably cousidered.

A Fearful Crime. The Boston Journal gives the following ac s count of the terrible crime which was briefly noticed in the telegraph yesterday: 3 Daniel S. Marsh wa*arrested Monday after , uoun in (Jliarb“rt0W0 for the murder of his own son, »» infant of nine months, and after his in carceration at the station house he confessed to i committing the deed aud the manner in which r it was accomplished. It appears that on the first of September, 3 1871, the body of a male infant some nine s months old was found on the dumps in the rear of the State Prison. The body was taken to the police station and a coroner’s inquest was held, f but the authorities did not succeed iu finding out the parents of the infant. There were some peculiar marks about the body and upon its face which caused it to be distinctly remember ed. e Time passed on, aud the matter faded from e the minds of the officers. On Monday a wo man visited the office of Chief of Police, and “ wt t wy;,... w*- .. . ; who resided at No. 32 Princeton street, had l living with her about eighteen mouths ago an infant, and that about that ti ne her husband 1 left her taking the child with him, to board out - as he said. The parties at that time were living _ in Leverett street Boston. From the description which the woman gave Y of the infant, Officer Knox was convinced that j the one found upon the dumps was the one which he had taken away at the time men ion s ed by the woman. He therefore visited the r Marsh woman, who now lives on Princeton j street in Charlestown, and from her obtained a description of her infant at the time it was 1 taken away by her husband, which tallied ex t actly with that of the waif found drowned She also informed the officer that her husband was living in Cambridge and employed by the ; Lowell Railroad Corporation. Chief of Police Ayers and Officer Knox pro ceeded to hunt up the man, and finally found him at work at the freight station of the above mentioned corporation in Boston. He was tak l 11,1 into custody, anl last evening, in the pres ence of the officers confessed to having done ' the horrible deed, and gave his motives for the inhuman act. He bad been married to his wife for a few years and had experienced considera ble trouble with her, she preferring to live with her mother rather than with him. She and her mother were in the habit of neglecting the child, which was afterwards murdered, and another which has since died, and on the even ing in which he took the infant away his moth er-in-law told him to take the babe and pro vide for it some way. He took the unconscious child from the house between nine and ten o’clock, wrapped it in its little cloak and hat, and proceeded to the Fitchburg railroad bridge. Here, he says, be remained some five minutes, meditating as to what course he should pursue, and finally made up his mind to drown his own sou, thinking, as he said last evening, “that it would be better off.” He then removed the babe 8 outer clothing, and after tying the arms and legs of the child together, he deliberately threw it into the river, and next day the body was fouud as above stated. ‘ " A day or two later be took the child’s cloak 1 and bat back to the mother, informing her that 1 he bad found a good place /or it, and lathe wo i man had pleut.v of clothing be had brought i back the clothes. Since this time he has sen . mated from his wife, who has had her auspi 1 cions aroused that the child 1 ad been disposed of in a manner other than that indicated by ler husband. These suspicions she communi :ated to an acquaintance in the house where he was stopping, who at length made up her mud to inform the authorities, with the rosult ibove stated. The unnatural father appeared last night to ic wholly unconscious of the awful crime of vliieh he had confessed himself guilty. He is I years of age, a laborer, aud judging from liis ippearance is below the average of humanity n intellect He told his story in a collected nanuer, and seemed to think that he had done mly what was best for his babe. The confes ion was got from him by the representation of he officers that it would be much better for lim to "own up" to the whole thing, and he in lis simplicity narrated the horrible story we lave briefly related.
