Friday*.—The Municipal Court room was crowd ed all day to-day with persons anxious to hear the trial of Nelson Leighton, his wife and Martin Con ljy, on the charge of resisting an officer while mak ju [ an arrest and facilitating the escape of the pris. oner. At nine o’clock the accused parties put In an appearance, accompanied by their counsel, M. P, Frank, esq. Leighton, with his iron gray hair and moustache, locked like a grenadier of the Old Guard and but for tbe Allying devil in bis eyes would be» considered a good looking man. Annie, his wife, looked decidedly bright, and brilliantly defiant with her good clothes on,-said clothes consisting of a handsome green silk, a black velvet sacqne, a decid edly stylish hat, and any quantity of trimmiugs. Time seemed to drag heavy on Annie’s handB, and she frequently consulted a handsome gold watch which she wore at her belt. Conley looked like the broth of a bov that he is. Tlie testimony of the officers was substantially tbe same as that already given in the newspapers. The testimony of tbe defence consisted iu a general de nial of the material alleg itions made by the prose cution. Leighton asserted that it was a rule of his, and indeed an object very dear to bis heart, to assist policemen whenever they fell into trouble: then he looked ahour. and smiled benevolently upon the mem bers of the Force that were present in the Court room. The arguments for the defence and for the prose cution were both very fine. Indeed, the attorney for the defence waxed particularly eloquent, exclaiming, “You may call the accused a hard man; you may say that he kept a hard place; but no man ever yet ac cused Nelson Leighton of telling a lie!” Judge Morris considered the case aud bound over each of the respondents in the sum of SSOO for ap pearance at the May term of the Superior Court. Leighton and his wife furnished bail, and Conley waB committed. Brief Joltings There is but one patient at the Greely Hos pital who is confined to the bed. The five oth ers are convalescent. We learn from Dr. Lamb, that Mr. John Foley of this city, who waS completely pros trated by a severe shock of paralysis, a few week ago, has entirely recovered his health and is now a>. work again in Messrs. Hall & Nor ris shoj factory. The Lewiston officer arrived in town yester day, and took away tbe man Flood, to meet a banaidlycbar*, p-re*ern*1 bim by* 8trl named Murphy. - - In justice to tlie residents of Washington * street it should be said that the matrimonial - infelicity which culminated in blows, recorded 3 in our Thursdays issue, took place on Cumber _ land street, and Washington street had neither part nor parcel therein. i- Now's the time and now’s the hour to get out ‘ your Sebago hose for washing the sidewalks, f The axle of a cart loaded with coal broke down in front of the United States Hotel yes*, terday afternoon, and scattered the “black diamonds” in every direction. The International Bailway Guido for April is at band, published by C. B. Chisholm & Brothers. Mrs. Maybury’s wallet was fonnd by a lady who returned it promptly and declined any re ward. Everybody will be glad to know that Mrs. Maybury lias escaped this, to her, very se rious loss. Yesterday showed what April can do when she is in a melting mood. The snow, which bad hitherto refused all invitations to move, yielded to her persuasive ways, and van ished rapidly. Bev. Dr. Hill enters upon his pastorate at the First Parish to-morrow.

They propose to present to the public Mr. J. K. Paine’s oratorio “St. Peter.” This in the first oratorio composed by an American, and the Haydns will give its first presenta tion. These facts of themselves would attract attention to the undertaking, but when to these the fact is added that Mr. Paine was a Port laud boy and a pupil of our own Kotzschmar, there is abundaut cause for lively interest in this musical eveut. The Haydns will spare neither labor nor expense to make the affair successful and deserve the cordial co-operation of all who have either love of music or local pride. We shall next week publish some of the criticisms of Mr. Paine's work from the musical journals. Pushing on the Good Work.—The Exec utive Committee asknowledge the following articles; as having been presented to the Maine General Hospital Fair: The Westbrook Manufacturing Co., through Rufus E.

G. Sire Win. Ellison. In the evening there will be a grand promenade concsrt in City Hall in which all Odd Fellows and their ladies are expected to participate. Railroad Accident.—The locomotive at tached to a freight train on the P. 8. & P., leaped the track about one mile west of E'.iot early yesterday morning. The rails were torn up for some lengths, and almost a half dozen cars damaged. The accident occurred in a cut, so it was found uecessary to put the locomotive and cars upon the track, before a passage could be made for the other trains. Consequently the succeeding trains from Boston were delayed soin" four hours. No man on the train was in fured. _ Accident.—A man named Aaron Wilkin son, met with a severe accident Wednesday af ternoon, while engaged as a switchman in the the yard of the P. S. & P., at Turner’s Island. As he was attempting to block some slow mov ing freight cars with a stake, the stake flew up and struck him in the stomach and tenrnle. .e bas been vomiting blood at intervals ever since, and it is feared that the injury may prove fatal. They’e Goi to Come.-So says Harry Blood good, and so say the members of bis minstrel burlesque troupe, who will open a three nights' engagement in this city, which begins this eve ning.

G. W. Bick nell of India Street Church will deliver a tem perance address, at the Allen Mission Chapel next Monday evening. The services will com mence at 7.45 The public are cordially invit ed. v >—• ’ -- SURVIVORS OF THE ATLANTIC. Arrival of the Falmouth. Statements ol Officers, Passengers and Crew. New Developments. Expeetation was on tiptoe last niglit,regarding the arrival of the Falmouth from Halifax, with the survivors of the Atlantic wreck on hoard. As early as eleven o’clock small knots of news paper men were gathered at Bailroad Wharf with note books and pencils in hand, eagerly awaiting her arrival. There were present re porters from the New York Herald, World and Times, the Boston Advertiser, Traveller and Transcript. During the long hours of waiting, they amused themselves by sending imagina tive and conjectural despatches to their respect ive papers. Some ran out to the Maine Central Station when the Eastern Pullman arrived, in hopes that some of the cabin passengers might be on | board. At 1.30 this morning the whistle of the Falmouth sounded, and at 1.40 she touched the wharf. There was a rush immediately to the gaDg-way but the officers of the boat warned them back. Very soon the passengers filed off the boat. It was a pitiful sight to see the poor fellows as they stepped shudderingly upon the plank, their faces wearing a look of inexpressible horror as they glanced shudding Iy down into the water. They were dressed in all sorts of garments, some of which looked like a patchwork combination of all countries under the sun. The general appearance of the steerage pas sengeis was much above the average, and they were a cleanly, temperate looking set of men. Indeed many of them are mechanics in the States, who have been over to Europe after rel atives and friends. Some started on their re turn trip with their families, and lost them on that fearful night off the rock-hound north eastern coast. Their joy at touching land was childish even Some of them fell down and kissed the ground, while others swung their hats and hurrahed. The steerage passengers, each of whom was furnished with a loaf of bread and a large piece of meat by the officers of the Falmouth, were hurried on the special traiu of nine cars which was to take them to Boston. Meantime the reporters jumped on board the steamer to interview the officers and cabin passengers. One Press reporter secured the following statistics, while others obtained the statements from passengers which are pub lished below: CABIN PASSENGERS William Boberts, Detroit; Thomas Dunn, S. Camacho, S. W. Vick, B. B. Bichmond, De troit; H. Hirzel, J. Brown. STEERAGE PASSENGERS. 41 Germans; 191 English andlrish;72 Swedes and Norwegians. The shipwrecked passengers expressed them selves as being very grateful to the officers of the Falmouth for the great kindness showed them during the trip. The thauks of the pub lic journals arc also due to Capt. Colby, purser Hackley and other officers, for the facilities furnished to reporters. We of the Press, are indebted to Mr. John Brewer, Jr., of our Cus tom House, who came from Halifax in the Fal mouth, for much valuable assistance and in formation. The special train for Boston left at 2.20. At Boston Faneuil Hall will be thrown open to the sufferers, and ample provisions be made for their comfort. Similar provision will be made at New York. Some of the passengers still re main in the hospitals at Halifax, being so bad ly injured and frost-bitten as not to he able to be moved. Many of those who came thro’ this morning were frost-bitten and injured, but still persisted in coming thro’. The man, whoso feet were frozen, had to be carried from the boat to the cars on the shoulders of the Fal mouth men. We append statements of passengers which we have collected: EXPERIENCE OF S. W. VICK. S. W. Vick of Wilmington, N. C., said he WQO An tllR v! rrrrl n rr o Iiaii r nirrlif hnnva iirn a awakened by the shock. The ship struck at about three o'clock a. m. At least three huud red perished within five minutes after she struck th1 second time. The officers were cool and competent, and behaved admirably in this trying emergency. The crew acted with great inhumanity and tried to save no one but them selves. After the crew got ashore they begun wrecking anu stealing. I was assisted into the rigging by a gentle man just as a heavy sea swept over the deck taking all that were left there. Among those swept away at this time was Mrs. Davidson and daughter of London, going to San Fran cisco to live with a brother. They were lost in about ten minutes after she struck. Mr. Brin ley of England was also lost. I had on only a shirt, pants and stockings—was nearly frozen. Couldn’t have stood it more than half an hour longer. The weather was extremely cold and a great many died on the rigging and deck from the cold, after suffering hours. The sights were most heart-rending. Strong men fell on the deck and died. I went ashore in the boat entirely exhausted—remained on the shore from 11 a. m., until tbe middle of tbe next day. The islanders were very kind, and furnished shelter, food and clothing, so far as they were able. The whole disaster was very sudden. The ship struck twice and immediate ly turned over. There was a heavy sea, which drenched everybody in the rigging, except in tbe highest parts. There were not many lost after daybreak. Vick has sustained some in ternal injury. SIMON CAMACHO. The story told by Simon Camacho, one of the cabin passengers, was most pitiable. He is an Italian by birth, but is a naturalized citizen of the United States, having been a resident of New York for twenty years. Two years ago, h left his wife and children, and went to Venez uela, South America, and was on his way home when the ship struck. He was in his state room and did not realize tbe cause of the shock until some one cried “the ship has struck a rock!” He seized some of his clothes and his money, and rushed on deck. The vessel was careening rapidly, and he made for tbe rigging; but he did not stay there long, the position was so dangerous, both on account of the rushing waves and the fiendish conduct of a part of the crew. He got down to the deck again, and se cured a hold on the side of the ship, where for seven long hours he hung until at last he was rescued. The waves were continually beating against him, and both feet were frozen. He fears that one of them will have to be amputa ted. He acknowledges the best of attention siuce his rescue, and his only desire is to reach his family as soon as possible. WILLIAM ROBERTS. Second Purser declares that tbe credit of tak ing the rope ashore from the Atlantic, which was a most perilous deed, is entirely due to Quartermasters Speekman and Owens, and that Officer Brady is uot entitled to any part of the great praise that he devided among these two gallent seamen after reserving a good por tion for himself. Mr. Vick corroborates this statement. STATEMENT OF JOHN TAYLOR. John Taylor, one of the steerage passengers, said: “I am an Irishman. Last winter, Wil liam M’Kee. an old mate of mine, came over to Ireland and wanted me to go back to the States with him. He had been in York State five years. Tarrytowu was the name of the place. So we took passage on the Atlantic. When she struck on the rock, me and my mate were in the bunk. I beard a dragging, grating sound, and thought she had let down her an chors. I got up and got my clothes on. Then there came an awful crash. Me and my male rushed on deck. Men were crowding for the rails, and were tramping each other down. My mate was pushed off and drowned. Pretty soon a sailor swam to the land and g-H a small rope. I clung to the rigging until a relief boat came. There were many others in the rigging w ose hands got frozen, an(j wjj0 dropped off o t ie water. Some of them screamed and 8™re- °t,lers kind of moaned like. , 1 k ? U Was brouRbt on deck by her hus band, but she ten dead with fright and cold al most as soon as she struck the deck. Crowds °off r £ hu; re vszzsir* zr anything. When I reached the ehmeTfifun zizzTcoZ zursr. r to get into Halifax because the coal was tne<! gone. They had begun to use the ballast. m°S WILLIAM W. HAYMAN’s STATEMENT I am au Englishman. Have lived for six years in Milwaukee. Went to England on a visit last winter, and came back to the States by the-Atlantic. When she struck I heard a sort‘of dragging sound. Was knocked part way out of my bunk. Got up and was dress ing when I heard a terrible crash. Tried to g ‘i on deck, but was knocked back by one of the crew, who nearly knocked my brains out. Got a hammer out of my sack and stove out glass in the porthole. Ju9t as I was getting out some one said, “let’s take the boy out first.” A little boy, the only child saved, was then put out. I followed. The man who slept next to me got out, and was swept away by the sea. I clung t&ere two hours. Others fell off. It was enough to make a man swoon to see them drop into the water. I was nearly froze when the boat came. I only saved the clothes I bad on. The people on shore treated me very kind ly. A great many meu were swept off and drowned in less than five minutes after the ves sel struck. The captain was asleep in his room when she struck. The watch were asleep too. The women were fastened into the steerage by the crew, so they wouldu’t be in the way. A COOL HAN. Mr B B. Richmond of Detroit, seems to be a very remarkable man. He seems perfectly ealm and unimpassioned, aud speaks of the events of that cruel night as he would of any conmiouplaee incidwut of history. He was awakened by the dull tliud of the vessel as she struck; says he got right up without waiting to be called. Went on deck, and finding things so exceedingly uncomfortable and damp, he stepped into an available spot in the rigging aud remained there eight hours, and saw the show for nothing and it never cost him a cent. He says he did not lose a single wife or child or relative during the whole disturbance. WHAT HEXBY HIBZIL SAYS. I am a native of Switzerland, am 20 years old; am going to New Jersey where I have friends. On the night of the disaster turned into uxy berth in the cabin as usual. The first I knew of the catastrophe was the officers fir ing rockets. I leaped from my birth to the deck, where everything was in coufnssion. The officers did their best to lower the boats, but hefora they could be launched, the ship turned over when Capt. Williams gave orders for every man to take care of themselves. I rushed for the rigging where I remained niue hours, until 1 was rescued by the fishermen. It was fearfully cold, and many women who had climbed to the rigging were so benumbed that they actually fell from the rigging into the sea and were swallowed up by the hungry waves. The most heart rending scene of all was that of a lady who hung by my side and was ac tually frozen to death. The lady’s fingers with which she grasped the cordage, aud which were frozen to it, was covered with costly rings. At the time of my rescue I could not have held fifteen minutes longer, Several times I was ready to give up, but thoughts of home encouraged me to hold out uutil rescued. This gentleman, in con won with others, is very warm in his grateful expressions to the Pros pect islanders. A!f INCIDBXT. Among the conspicuous examples of pres ence of mind was the case of Simon Gamachs who, when he found that the vessel must sink, ran back to his room, took his purse and jewels and went joyfully aloft. The ruling passion was strongest with the Jew, even in the midst of the dangers of that cruel night. The steerage passengers evidently belong to the better class or emigrants, but they are at bast, a sad, stricken, soulless looking set of men who seem to have left their hopes and the best part of their lives that cruel night, on the fated ship in the devowering waves. Oit account of the late hour at which the Falmouth, bringing the survivors of the ill-fat ed Atlantic, arrived this morning, we are oblig ed to gw to press very late. We trust our pat rons vJll excuse the delay, in consideration of the inffirest and importance of the news which we furnish. Frycbnrg Despite the bad traveling, a good audience turned out to hear W W. Thomas, Jr.’slecture upon “A ramble in Norway.” His lecture so admirably interwoven with “historic facts and story” giving a gorgeous description of that country whose chief characteristics are snow capped mountains, lofty peaks, deep ravines leaping cascades, was a real treat and one which was truly appreciated by his attentive hearers. The hour spent with Thomas Thurs day evening iD his “ramble through Norway” so interesting and instructive,will long be remem bered by his friends at Fryeburg. S. TnE Portland Shirt is well liked. 1II8CKLLANEOII8 NOTICES. New England Mutual Life Iasurance C*. “Let another man praise thee and not thine own mouth.—Solomon.

Mr. Schell—Yes, and procured the indict ment of several of the usurers; but to coutinue, New York has been swindled by these men out of at least $20,000,000.

Farther Criticism of the Construction of the Steamship. New York, April 4.—The Bulletin of to-day. iu discussing the causes and c'rcumstauces at tending the loss of the Atlantic, says that the most notable fact couuected with the construc tion of the vessel is that she should have careen ed over so soon af.er striking the rocks. Had she been of ordinary breadth of beam, even though unusually long, she would have doubt less kept her balance and upr.ght position long enough for many more, possibly all the passen gers, to have safely landed. A short time since, the Oceanic, sitter ship to the Atlantic, was found to have astroug-‘list”tostarboard.aud the officer on deck, discerned to his surprise, that by merely changing from one side to the other 2500 pounds of freight, the vessel, though draw ing twenty-one feet of water, was given equally strong list in the opposite direction. A Careless Conductor. St. Louts, April 4.— It appears that the ac cident on the St. Louis and Southeastern Rail road, which occurred at French Village, yester day afternoon, was occasioned by the culpable carelessness of the conductor of the construc tion train. The passenger train was just about to take the side track, to let a freight train pass, when the construction train, which had been passed by the passenger train but a few min utes before, and the conductor must have known of its proximity, came thundering arouud a curve at high speed, aud plunged into the rear of the passenger coach. The conductor of the passegger train saw the construction train com ing,and cried out for the passengers to jump for their lives. Many did so, but the engine of the co'sttuction train had entered'he passen ger coach. The latter was immediately filled with steam, and a number of passengers were more or less scalded. Mrs. John B. Luck, (or Luke), while in the act of jumping from the train, was caught between the cars and crushed to death. Her husband, with their infant in his arms, succeeded in reaching the platform. A gentleman, suDposed to be James H. Watts a member of the Illinois Legislature,was caught between the platform of the rear car and the engine of a dirt train, and literally torn to pie ces. A daughter of Mrs. Griffin, received a jet stream full iu her face, and was horribly scalded about the head and upper part of the body, and her eyes were put out. It is thought that she cannot recover. Mrs. Stehbins of Milwaukee, was severely cut and bruised about the head several otner passeugers were more or less in jured. The engineer of the dirt train. Michael Planning, fled as soon as he saw the result of his carelessness. A Lively Scene in the New Jersey House— Representatives Indulge in n Free Fight. Trenton, April 4.—The remarks made by Mr. Carse in the House yesterday, calling Sco vil a perjured man and a scoundrel, culminated this morning in a fight in the lobby. Cole and John Hood had some warm words, when Sco vil came up and a a violent talk took place be tween Scovil and Cole. Cole passed the lie, and Scovil struck him a heavy blow and sent him reeling to the floor. The excitement grew intense. The Speaker directed the sergeant-at arms to close all the doors. Carse, hearing the noise outside, rushed from his seat to the lobby and mixed iD the fight. Scovil seized Carse and punished him' severely, knocking him down, and it is said he was kicked while down. Cole’s eyes were blacked. The Mayor, who happened to be present, induced Scovil to go out of the State House.

Some excitement was created to-day in con sequence of the arrest of one of the Senators. Immediately after the adjourment sine die, an officer walked up to C E. Shepard, Senator from Cuuilierland, and arrested him on a war rant issued on complaint of one Jos. ShafferJ one of the contractors of the National railway, charging the Senator with corruptly receiving $2,500 in consideration or his vote in the inter est of said National railway. It is stated that Shephard received the money, but did not vote as expected or as he had agreed upon. It is said he intended to return the money. The affidavits charge him with having takeu the money and keeping it. Shephard gave bail for his appearance before the Mercer county Court of Oyer and Terminer in May next to answer to the charge. Not a Visitation of Providence. St. Louis, April 3.—Coroner Ryau held an inquest upon bodies of three of the persons killed on the St. Louie & Southern R. R., and the jury after examining many of the employ ees of the train and several passengers and of ficers of the road, returned a verdict that Con ductor Michael Ward and engineer, John Fanning of the construction train, were gross ly aud culpably negligent in starting ahead of time, and running at too great a speed, They also censure the conductor of the passenger train for not flagging the construction train, aud the officers of the road for not informing the conductor of the freight train of the discon tinuance of certain trains thereby detaining his train which was the cause of the accident.
