Action oi tres pass quare clausum to recover damages for taking and carrying away thirty rods of board fence and for damage done to plaintiff’s pasture by defendant^ cattle. Parties reside in Naples and own pastures adjoining, between which they maintained a line fence sixty rods in length in common and undivided. The fence was built ten years ago by both parties, the defendant furnishing the boards for the whole fence and plaintiff testifies that he furnished the stakes.— About two years ago the parties divided the fence,one taking the east half to maintain and the other the west half. The defendant erected upon his half a stone wall, and the plaintiff says that he asked Choate for the boards that constituted the old fence on bis (defendant’s) part, which the defendant gave him—to repair his (plaintiff’s) half; that the next fall defend ant went and took the boards and hauled them away. Defendant admits that be took the boards, but says that the plaintiff only borrowed them for that season, saying that he intended to sell his farm and did not feel able to erect a stone wall; that during the next October the fence blew down and he went and haule^ away Lis boards—the period for which they were tor rowed having expired.

His wit was rewarded by a most bewitching sniggle from his fair compan ion. April fool sells were not plenty yesterday. A crowd of b.iys in front of the Falmouth House got some amusement out of a bundle contain ing a brick, whioh passers-by kicked up, much to the detriment of their toes.

The old waiters struck, but their places were immediately supplied by experienced colored servants. A jigger got stuck in the snow at Congress Square yesterday aud impeded travel for a time. A largo uumber of people assembled at the Preble House last evening to witness the match game of billiards. After waiting same time it dawned upon their minds that it was All Fools Day. A iisrse car got stuck in the mud on Middle street, below the Post Office, yesterday, aud the passengers were compelled to get out.— An other harbinger. The annua] meeting of the Relief Associa tion P. F. D. will be held at the office of the Chief Engineer, in the City Building, this evening at 8 o’clock. The annual meeting of the S. P. C.

Their owner showed them to many persons, stating thft.t Ilf* htirl noafn/l 4} In a n nnn J__ ing to make people believe that the flies were carved. The favored ones chuckled all day thinking of the people to be “sold.” A man fell into the drink from a vessel in th ■ harbor yesterday, just as he was preparing to do a job in the chains. He wasagood swim mer, and soon rescued himself from his un comfortable and perilous situation. Horse cars begin running on wheels to-day from Market Square to Munjoy.

Yesterday officer Sterling arrested a boy nam ed Ihnton Libby, seventeen years old, for the larieny of §20 worth of stone from the Maine C entral.

The elegaut aud commodious steamer Fal mouth signalised her first appearance for the season by a little excursion down the harbor yesterday afternoon, prior to her departure for Halifax. The weather was perfect, and the fresh, bracing air, bright sun and smooth wa ter were the more heartily appreciated on ac count of the conspicuous absence of these nat ural luxuries through the dreary winter aud spring months from which we have just escap ed. On the spacious decks and in the luxuri ous cabins were gathered a genial, hearty com pany of gentlemen, bent upon the most com plete enjoyment of their delightful surround ings. The trip was a short one, occupying hut little over an hour, and so fully was the time occupied by merry conversation, ringing songs and all the other accompaniments which natu rally appertain to an excursion of the kind that it seemed even shorter. The Falmouth emerges from her winter’s re tirement with several important improvements in her machinery, the better to adapt her for the peculiarities of the Halifax route, and may be safely pronounced to he as perfect a boat for the purpose for which she is designed as has ever been made. Her freight accommodations have also been enlarged, increasing her carry ing capacity two hundred barrels—of flour. The Falmouth is specially attractive to pas sengers, her rich equipments, clean, airy rooms, good kitchen, and spacious and convenient ac commodations of all kinds being well supple mented by the courtesy and attentiveness of her officers, who arc gentlemen as well as thor ough seamen. The general management of the line merits high commendation, and tourists may bo assured of safe, agreeable and rapid conveyance by this route. We append a brief description of that part of the interior of this fine vessel devoted to passengers, from the Nautical Gazette: On the main deck, on either side of the gang way as you enter, and on the guardB, is the steward’s room and a fine wash-room and bar ber shop. Facing aft, and on the port side of the boat, is the clerk’s office, while on the other side is a large state-room. The ladies’ saloon is capacious, handsomely upholstered and fur nished, and contains 36 sleeping berths. The best of hair matrasses and pillows give promise of a good bed. In the lower cabin there are 75 Vtortha TVlill OPuvfmont ia lnuran nnJ ^ —....„-3 ingly well ventilated, and ia more than usually comfortable. On the hurricane deck are 42 j first class state rooms, each containing two j sleeping berths, the lower one being of double width. These rooms are large, airy and very tastefully fitted up in black walnut trimmings, and are provided with the modern luxuries to be found on the steamers of the present day. The grand saloon is decorated in choice shades of pearl, pink, brown aud green, relieved by gilt moldings and pillar caps, making a fine effect. The forward end of the saloon is set apart as a dining hall, where meals are served on the European plan, the tables being sup plied from a pantry on this deck, from which by means of a dumb-waiter, the food is raised from the kitchen below. Sacred Concert.—The prospects are good for a fine bouse at the sacred concert, compli mentary to Mr. Ira Stockbridge, which takes place at the First Baptist church this evening. Mr. Stockbridge’s mauy friends will be only too happy to testify their appreciation of liis worth and his musical ability, by a full attend ence this evening.

He will probably be brought before Judge Morris to day and fined for being drunk; and if he has not the money to pay his fine, he must suffer a further imprisonment. He appeared to be a “poor” mau. This morning on looking over the “locals” in the Press our eye rested on the following item: “One of our wealthiest and heretofore most respectable citizens was taken to his residence “dead-druuk” by the police last night.” We must confess that we ware filled with in dignation as we read this paragraph, and thought of the great difference in the treatment of these two drunken men. The poor man must bo roughly treated and fined or imprisoned; the rich man is tenderly takeu iu a hack to his res idence ! And this is the work our police are doing. Shame on such toadyism! Shame on such justice! C. April 1, 1873. [Imagination must have supplied the hack. The man was making no disturbance, and ob structing no sidewalk. Under the circumstan ces it was hardly the province of the police to arrest him. It is the rule of the force to assist every man to his home, rich or poor, who is un able to find his way. The fact that he is drunk makes and ought to make no difference. If he is guilty of breaking the peace, then he is ar rested.] Passenger Statistics.—For the quarter [ ending March 31st, 1873, there have been 366 cabin and 2507 steerage passengers landed at this port. Of these France furnished 123 males and 24 females: Germany 41 males; Sweden 61 males, 18 females; Norwny 77 males; England 383 males, 139 females; Ireland 249 males, 79 females; Scotland 60 ma’es, 15 females; aud Nova Scotia 55 males, 5 females. Thus it will be seen that England heads the list. The to tal of those from foreign countries was 1337, of whom 1049 were and 288 females. Of this number 495 were laborers, 151 farmers, 134 merchants, 53 ship carpenters, 22 clerks. 14 each seamen and masons, and less than 10 each of other trades. Of passengers not immigrants, there arrived 1536 of whom 1136 were males and 400 females. To the Ladies of the State Exclusive of Portland. Mr. H. H. McDuffee, Jeweller, corner Mid dle and Union streets, Portland, will present an elegant gold watch to the lady of any town or city in this State(exclusive of Portland) who will oblaiu the largest contribution in money in aid of the Maine General Hospital Fair, and remit the amount to the Gentlemen’s Exeeu. tive Committee at Portland by the first day of June next. The same committee deciding who is entitled to the watch. The watch may be seen at the store of Mr. McDuffee. it is to be hoped that our Maine exchanges will do the generous thing in bringing this of fer to the ladies of the State. Love Lettebs.—City Hall will undoubtedly be well filled to-night by an audience desirous of hearing Eev. C. B. Pitblado discourse on the ever interesting subject of love letters. Nearly every one has written and received the soft missives which are as absurd as a secret despatch to one who doesn’t possess the cypher, aud there will be much curiosity to bear the eloquent lecturer upon the subject. A provin cial paper says of Mr. Pitblado: The large hall was crowded last night to the door. Mauy had to leave because rhey could standing room. The lecturer was Mr. Pitblado, and the subject “Love Letters.” We heard one of the Professors in the college say that Pitblado is bound to rival Gough. Social Hop. The social hop complimentary to Mr. J. W. Kennedy at the Army and Navy Hall last evening was a brilliant and enjoyable affair. About forty couples were present many of whom were pupils of Mr. Kennedy. The order of dances was a fine one, embracing many that have heretofore been little in vogue in this city. At the intermission a fancy drill was gone through with by the “markers” of the lortlaud Cadets. The company broke up, lavish of their praises of Mr. Kennedy, and ex pressing the hope that they may have the bene fit of his instruction another Winter, A Lively Time.—Monday evening a party of friends assembled at the residence of George H. Lefavor on Franklin street, where, after spending an hour in social intercourse, a boun tiful collation was provided by the hostess after which a set of crockery ware was present ed to Mr. and Mrs. John'F. St. John, who have lately been united in the bonds of wedlock. The festivities were kept up to a late hour, and all parted with the desire that when the paper wedding arrives they may be there to par ticipate. 1 Pebsonal.—The friends of Heury W. Her sey, Lsq., City Treasurer will be pleased to know that ho has so far recovered from his re cent severe illness, as to begin to attend to the duties of his responsible position. Fatal Accident.—Last evening about seven o’clock Parlrick Kavanaugh, a teamster, fell from bis jigger near the corner of Portland and Brattle streets, and falling under the wheels, was crushed. He was taken to his residence, No. 6 Brattle street, and Dr. Files was called, No help, however, could be given, and in about three quarters of an hour the man was dead. No bones were broken, and it is conjectured that death resulted from the nervous shock of injury. Ivavanaugh had been drinking, He was about fifty years of age. He leaves a wife. Thk New Footman.—The great eucces which attended the first performance of the “New Footman" has induced Mission Lodge to give a repetition of the play at Arcana Hall this evening. It is said to be very amusing, and a good audience will undoubtedly greet it. Ice cream and other refreshments will he for sale. Quick Wobk.—The steamer Achilles arrived ht Messrs. Randall & McAllister’s wharfrlast Saturday, with 1029 tons of coal on board and in just 17 hours the cargo was discharged by them. This coal is from the celebrated Tun nell colliery and is the first cargo shipped to this port by the Philadelphia and Reading Railroad Compauy. Accident.—We regret to learn that Mr. Robert Pennell, for so many years a member of the Police Force, was seriously injured yes terday by a kick on the hip from a horse. No hones were broken but the great sciatic nerve was badly injured, and Mr. Pennell is suffer ing great pain. Gorham. To the Editor of the Press : During the early part of the Winter some of our lead:ng citizens concluded that self interest, as well as public interest, demanded that Gor ham should more actively engage in different five weeks since a public meeting was called. After an evening spent in discussion, it was the unanimous sense of the meeting that our business zeal much exceeds 1 our knowledge;so we appointed a committee of our principal citizens to take the matter under consideration.Tliey at once sent a committee to Massachusetts,to visit the Manufacturing Com munities, and invite proposals from business - meu to settle among us. Monday night we met at the Methodist Church to hear the report of this committee. Dr. Chas. Hinkley of Boston, one of our Gor ham hoys, favored us with some capital music upon the organ. Mr.Roscoe Harding,Chairman of the subcom mittee reported that the committee had spent about three weeks in and about Boston examin ing different manufactories, and interviewing business meu, and that the Glass, Brick, Sleigh and Shoe interests together with other kinds of manufacturing were ready to settle among us provided we offered sufficient inducements. The committee did not lay proposals before the meeting, as the parties making them are coming down soon to examine our manufact uring facilities. The committee also reported that by the co opera ion of our capitilists, the productive ca pacity of our different homo industries might be largely increased. Among these industries are the Tannery of Hinkley Brothers & Benson, employing more than filty men, and manufacturing all kinds of leather. The Coat manufactories of Messrs. Bolton. Harding, Parkhurst and Roberts, em ploying in the aggregate more than a thousand people. The Machine Shop of Gammon & Sons, who are overrun with orders. The Corn packing establishment of the Portland Pack ing Co., whose payments to our farmers alone last year were more than $40,000, and the Car pet Factory of Marshall Irish. Esq., who, if encouraged, will make large additions to his factory besides erecting an expensive laundry. A spirited discussion followed the report of the committee in which Judge Waterman, Col. Robie, Capt. Emery, Stephen Hinkley and Ubucia (Miuu^abcu. xuc uLamuiuuo ocuvuuuuv was that Gorham would offer any reasonable encouragement to manufaetoring enterprises both by private subscriptions and by exemp tion from taxation; that we want practical business men, not educated theorists; and that we will cooperate with such parties and not ask them to cooperate with us in carrying on bus iness with whose details we are unacquainted. After instructing the committee to continue their negotiations with different parties, and to call a meeting soon to hear definite proposals, the meeting adjourned. * Turner Brothers, at their “one price'' store, have inaugurated their Spring opening of dress goods, silks, paisley, cashmere aud otto man shawls. The stock embraces all the nov elties of the New York and Boston markets and will be sold at greatly reduced prices. The line of black silks is very fine. Our lady read ers will do well to give them a call. None but the best goods, in the Portland Shirt. IUNCELLANEOU8 NOTICES. Life 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.

To the question why she did not give the au thorities information immediately on hearing of the case, witness stated that she had no reason.

WASHINGTON. The Fishery Treaty. Important to Fishermen. Washington, April 1.—The following circu lar relative to the fishermen on the coast of Canada was issued from the Treasury Depart ment to-daj : To collectors of customs and others: By circular under the date of March fith, 1872, this department notified collectors of cus toms and the republic in regard to restrictions to which American vessels will be be subject when employed in fishery on the coasts of Brit ish North America colonies, and that the provisions between the United States and Great Britain proclaimed July 4th, 1871, so far as they relate to the fisheries would not go into effect till the laws required them in operation being passed by the Imperial parliament of Great Britain by the parliament of Canada, and by the legislature of Prince Edward Island on the one baud and by the Congress of the Unit ed States on the other. The Secretary of State recently assured me that he had been ‘ officially informed by Her Brittainic Majesty’s minister at Washington that the Executive government of the Dominion of Canada, re garding the act of Congress giving effect to the treaty of Washington, as not going into opera tion till July, 1873, has decided that till that time American fishermen have no leeal right to fish in Canada waters, and their vessels are li able to seizure for doing so; that the Dominion governmant will however take no steps to pre vent vessels from fishing within the tnree mile limit, that such vessels will have permission to fish so far as that government can grant it, and that it is not probable that any seizures will be made at the instance of private parties but that should such a case occur, the good effects of the government will be used advising the re lease of vessels and the remission of any penal- ' ities incurred. In view of this courterous and libera] act of the government of the Dominion, you are here by enjoined to make known to the public inter ested in tlie subject as far as possible that un til the Treaty of Washington relative to the fisheries shall go into effect, the liberty of fish ing in waters hereafter to be thrown open to fishermen of the United States by the operation of these provisions, is perraissory only and sub ject to attempts by private parties to enforce Ilia u+tll avtolirwv larrol rnetmAtinna mkinU nnA forth in the circular of this department already referred to, and that if A merican fishermen en cage in fishing within the three mile limit hereinbefore mentioned before July 1, 1873, they may still be subjected to serious difficulty by private parties under the provisions of the statutes of the Dominion of Canada.

On the first receipt of the news of the disas ter here, a Cunard and a government steamer started to the assistance of the Atlantic. The second officer has arrived. He reports making this port for coal in a heavy gale with rain; struck on Meagher’s Head, Cape Prospect, at 2 o’clock this morning. She had nearly 1000 pas sengers, 700 of whom were drowned; 250 got ashore, but no women and children were saved. The captain is saved; the chief officer is sup posed to have been lost. The ship lis a total wreck. The cargo is still on board, none afloat; it may be partially saved. Later. This afternoon a report being current 'that steamer had been wrecked on the coast and sev eral lives lost, was first regarded as an “April fool;” but this evening the Cuuards received news that it was all true, and that only little of the truth had been told, the fact being that the White Star Lino steamer Atlantic, Capt. Wil liams, from Liverpool for New York, coming into Halifax for coal, struck on Meagher’s ’ Eock, near Prospect, 22 miles west of Halifax, and became a total wreck. Of 1000 souls on board upwards of 700 were drowned. The third officer, Brady, arrived in town this evening. He says that the Ailantic left Liverpool on the 20th of March, with upwards of 900 steerage passengers and about 50 cabin passengers. They experienced boisterous weather but al went well until noon Monday, the 31st, when the supply of coal was nearly exhausted and the captain determined to put into Halifax. The captain and third officer were on deck until midnight. The position was then judged to be Sambro light, bearing N. N.'W., 33 miles. Tho captain then went into his chart room, leaving orders to be called if there was anv change in the vessel’s position. Brady went to bed about the same time as the captain. The n xt thing he remembers is he was thrown out of hisbunk and he felt the ship strike several times. Ho

then rushed on deck and found the captain and officers there, and the deck full of passengers. He got an axe and commenced to clear away a boat, and the captain and others were doing the same. Brady got his out and put two women in it. A number of men attempted to get into it and about a dozen succeeded. Just at that mo ment the vessel fell over on her beam euds aud sunk. Only one boat had been got out, and that was carried down by tho steamer and all in Brady scrambled into the mizzen rigging,which was above the water. Seeing ho could do noth ing, he then went forward and unwove tho hal yards, assisted by Messrs. Speakman and Owen, quartermasters. Brady then took the halyards and all three swam to the rock and then a Hue was hauled ashore aod a number of passengers landed by him. A number had got on the rock, but as the tide was rising their position was no better than on the vessel. Just then the fishermen on shore came out in boats and rescued these on the rock and a large number from the rig* ging. Brady remaiued at the scene uatil noon to-day, when all who were alive on board had been saved except the chief officer. Mr. Frith, who was in the rigging shouting for .help. Bra dy says he tried to get a crew to go to the res cue of Frith but the sea was so heavy nobody would volunteer. Altogether about 250 were saved, including Capt. Williams, the 4th offi cer, Mr. Brown, the doctor, and several of the engineers and sailors. Not a single woman or child was saved; most of them as well as hun dreds of the men were drowned in their berths. The ship struck about 2 o’clock this morning.— The weather at the time was dark but not thick and the sea rough. The steamers are going down to-uight to render what assistance they possibly can. All the people saved from the wreck with the exception of Brady are still at Prospect, where the fishermen are giving them all the attention they possibly can. The following is the Chronicle’s report of the disaster: Need we say that the terrible an nouncement created a profound feeling of hor ror throughout the community. Having ascer tained that one man from the wrecked ship had arrived in town a reporter went in search of him and found him in an eating house in up per Water street. He proved to be Mr. Brady, the 3d officer of the Atlantic, bruised, worn out and almost speechless. After . the terrible events of tho morning he was, as might be ex pected, in no condition to talk. Nevertheless be cheerfully gave such information as he conld. The Atlantic, Mr. Brady said, left Liverpool on Thursday, March 20th, for New York, touched at Queenstown the next day to receive mails and passengers, after which she started on her voyage across the ocean. She bad a full cargo of general merchandise and a very large number of passengers. She was commanded by Capt. James Agnew Williams. Rough weather was experienced, but nothing worthy of note occur red until noon of Monday, the 31st, when the coal being short Capt. Williams resolved to put into Halifax for a supply. Tne Captain and Mr. Brady had the night watch up to midnight, when they were relieved by the chief and 4th officers. The chief and fourth officers having taken charge, Mr. Brady went below and turn ed into his berth. The captain at the same time went into his room to lie down. What oc curred between midnight and 2 o’clock, the time at which the disaster occurred. Mr. Brady cannot tell,as he was awakened and thrown out r.f Vila KnwtV. Y.~ * V, ~ _I_ _ struck. She struck heavily three or four times. Mr. Brady ran up to the deck and found it full of passengers. He found an axe and with it commenced to clear away the starboard life boat. He discovered that the Captain and other officers were engaged in clearing the other boats. Mr. Brady succeeding in getting his life boat out and there was a rnsh for the boat, This was the only boat launched and it had no sooner touched the water than a crowd made a rush to get into it. Mr, Brady had to use force to prevent them from crowding in. He put two women in and about a dozen men also got in. Just then the steamer fell over. Disturbance at Barcelona. Madrid, April 1.—Notwithstanding the ef forts of the authorities at Barcelona to preserve peace, disorder has occurred.

After a short contest the insurgents were defeated by the republican troops a«d fled in disorder.
