Two large flocks of wild geese, hound for the Canadas, passed over this city Saturday. Several youths and maidens were “lally-gag ging” about the Park Saturday night, which we take to be n most nrnnonnrvwl hnr^inirap The bar at the Maine General Hospital head quarters, under the Falmouth Housa, will, it is to be hoped, become a popular place of resort for those who which to treat a friend to a mod est quencher.

Boston papers assume that the Atlantic sur vivors supposed Faneuil Hall to be a church, because they took off their hats when they en tered,—from which we infer that Bostonians wear their hats in all buildings except the churches. Boys have begun to trundle hoops on the sidewalks. The annual parish meeting of State street church will be held this evening. Mr. Nelson Leighton took occasion to remark Saturday night that the now police were worse than th- devil. No man in the city is probably better qualified to pass judgment ih the case. The Sheriff and his deputios visited Wash ington street Saturday night, and made five liquor seizures in that locality. Lev. Dr. Hill delivered the initial sermon of his First Parish pastorate yesterday. The Y. M. C. A., are to open a Sunday school in their mission building, Deering’s bridge. The last week, of course, didn’t pass with out an accident en the Grand Trunk. This time it occurred at Norton’s Mill, and was a collision between a passenger and a freight train. One passenger car was telescoped, but no passengers were seriously hurt. The Board of Manufactures organized Satur day#by the choice of C. P. Kimball for chair man, C. E. Jose for vice chairman, and W. W. Thomas Jr., for secretary. Messrs.

Police Notes.—Officers Staples and Jones arrested a woman for drunkenness and disturb ance in Poplar street yesterday. The woman badly hit one of Jones’ fingers. Last night she was imploring a release, and said she didn’t think a woman ought to be kept from her Mon day’s washing just for biting off three or four fingers. Every cell at the station was filled Saturday night, and one i nebriatc was consigned to the lodging-room. Officers Garland and Horr arrested a boy yes terday for assaulting his mother in-law. A man was arrested by officers York and Crowell on High street, for indulging his pas sion for the manly art at the expense of an other man’s nose. • A boy 17 years old, applied at the station house for lodgings last uight, saying that he came from Quebec Saturday, and that be was anxious to go to sea. He was half dead with hunger and cold. A small and intoxicated individual had the idiotic audacity to accost Deputy Bridges who was dressed in citizens clothes, on Congress street last night, and ask him if he wanted to fight. Mr Bridges tucked him under one arm as you might a small boy, and brought him to the station. The fellow had been insulting people on the street, and will be arraigued be fore the Municipal Court this morning. He wore a Palm Sunday sprig in his hat, and ap parently belongs to the church militant. The marshal and his deputies made a descent on several liquor shops that were open yester day. ____ Past, Present and Future.—We are glad to learn that the Hon. Charles P. Kimball of this city has kindly consented to del.ver his lecture entitled “Maine, past present and fu ture,” on Thursday evening next in the India street church. It is given at the request of the Trustees of the church and many citizens of Portland. An admission fee of 25 cents will be charged, the proceeds to be in aid of the new tower and hell._ Questionable. — It is rumored that the wharves of the Grand Trunk will be used for the Domiuion line of steamships after the ex piration ot the contract with the Allan line, also that $200,000 has been offered by Sir Hugh Allan for the Frauklin wharf property, and refused; slso that negotiations are in pro gress between Mr. St. John Smith and the Bos ton and Maine, for Smith’s wharf. Death of a Respected Citixen. * W ■ regret to announce the death of Mr. Joseph Symonds, an old and respected resident >• of this city, which occurred at his residence on - Pine street early on Sunday morning. Mr. Symonds was a native of Denmark, in the county of Oxford, but removed at an early age to Raymond in this county, where he lived till the year 1845, engaged in trade and farming, and dealing somewhat extensively, in those times, in lumber. In the. spring of 1845 he re moved to Portland, where he has Bince resided. For several years he was engaged in business here and was well-known in this community as an active and energetic business man, but foi - some ten or fifteen years past, and especially since the death of his oldest son, William Law Symonds, who died in New York iu 186w a ter = a short illness, at the age of twenty-eight, and who had thus early won for himself an enviable reputation in the literary world by his ripe scholarship and rare talents, ho has led a very quiet and retired life almost entirely withdrawn from active pursuits. He was a member of the Free Will Baptist denomination and always interested in its pros perity. He was an early member of the Free Soil party—as well as of the party which aivo ccted the prohibitory liquor laws of the state. He retained his usual vigor of body and mind until about three years since, when a slight fall which he received was followed in a few days by a stroke of paralysis. Since that time he has never wholly recovered, though he has sev eral times rallied so far as to be out upon the street moving slowly and feebly. A man of rare gentleness and kindly nature, he has gone down to his fathers in the fullness of years undisturbed by any of the animosities whicli so often attend ns here, and leaving the 1 memory of a pure and upright life as a rich ' heritage to his surviving family. He leaves a widow and four children, three daughters and one son, the present Judge of the Superior Court. __ A Generous Offer. The following correspondence explains itself: Portland, Me, April 5th, 1873. 7b the Executive Committee of Maine General Hospital Fair. Gentlemen,—Knowledge coming to me since my a:rival in this city, of the proposed fair iu aid of the*faine General Hospital, we would ask the favor of you as the Executive Commit tee to allow us to be first in the field in giving our aid; and we do volunteer our services and invite you to name either Monday or Tuesday evenings, April 7th or 8th, for the entertain ment. An early reply will favor Your obt. servant, Habry Bloodgood. Headquarters Executive Committee, Maine General Hospital Fair, Portland, April 5th, 1873. Harry Bloodgood,—Dear Sir: Your note of this date just received. We accept with many thanks the generous offer on behalf of the Maine General Hospital Fair and would name Monday evening, April 7th, as the date of the pro nosed ueneut. xours very respectfully. A. W. H. Clapp, C. H. Haskell, C. E. Jose, S. Cr Gordon, S. H. Tewksbury, H. F. Furbish, F. H. Gerrish, James E. Carter, Ex. Committee. Bloodgood is the whitest man on the Minstrel boards, tho’ he doesn’t look so on the stage.— His offer is a geuerous one, and will be duly ac knowledged by the appreciative public of Port land. Hi troupe is the best Minstrel troupe that has ever been in this city. Music Hall was packed Saturday night by a delightful au dience, as it undoubtedly will be this and to morrow evenings. In addition to the mirth provoking burlesques and character songs, La Belle Celeste, the most daring of female gym nasts, will execute her “leap for life’’ on tbt trapeze. Her dexterity and grace are wonder ful. __ The Growling Season.—There are chronic growlers, the continuity of whose cioakings no season or condition breaks; but the spring— March and April—is the growlers’ season. Then the elastic vigor that bracing cold weath er brings, gives place to a listless, jaundiced, bill ious state that is unhealthy and gives every thing a sombre hue. Then the tax-payer looks after the Street Commissioner; and if that offi cial does not keep the gutters clear so that tho melting snow will run away, he is inefficient and allowing people’s property to be wasted. If that official makes an effort to put the streets in decent condition and expends labor in cut' ting away mountains of ice, preventing injury to life and limb and possible expense to the city, he has a solid growl about taxes. We have been led to this remark by noticing a lit tle item in the Advertiser, signed tax-payer, who complains that the Street Commissioner has made a vigorous attempt to free a shaded part of Middle street from so great an accumu lation of ice that it promised to defy dog-days, besides rendering the street dangerous both to pedestrians and carriages. We think we can assure Mr. Payson, the efficient Street Commis sioner, that the business men and the live tax payers of the city will heartily endorse him in the vigorous policy he has instituted. There never has been so bad a time in the spring as i the present; and a month ago poople feared that the melting snow would flood the streets but so thoroughly has Mr. Payson kept the gut. ters clear that there lias been no cause for com plaint. Official Efficinct.—Our Custom House authorities, under direction Of the Deputy Col lector in charge, acted with very commendable promptness and efficiency in caring for the sur vivors of the Atlantic disaster on their passage through this city. Surveyor True and Deputy Smith were on the ground in person superintending the trans fer from boat to cars and preventing any un necessary delays or hindrances from annoying these unfortunate people. Mr. J. B. Coyle, Jr., of flie New England and Nova Scotia Steamship Company,was also active and atten tive in facilitating the transfer. To these gen tlemen also, the newspaper men are much indebted for the courtesy in affording means to obtain information. Everything in connection with the wnole affair which came within the province of any of our Portland officials, was aumiraoiy and handsomely done. We are glad to notice that all the journals represented on the occasion have recognized these facts. Maine Hospital Fair.—The ladies’ general committee on the Fair met at Rossini Hall at 3 p. m. Saturday. Reports wero received from the ladies belonging to the different church parishes showing that there is great interest and enthusiasm awakened in the work. Seve ral of the parish committees have organized and are already vigorously at work, There was a very large attendance. The following ladies were added to the general committee: Mrs. A. P. Fuller, Mrs. L. C. Wade, Mrs. John W. Chase, Mrs. J. B. Donnell, Mrs. J. S. Cush man, Mrs. S. W. Larrabee, Mrs. John Ander son, Miss Harriet Noble, Mrs. George C. Hop kins, Mrs. Edwin Churchill, Miss Ernestine L Libby, Miss Sarah Chaddock, Mrs. Chauncey Barrett and Miss Hattie Little Go Thou and do Likewtse.—Our evening contemporary says that a gentleman was invit ed Saturday forenoon by a party to “take a smile,” to which he replied, that instead of the drinks he would agree to devote the amount it would cost to the General Hospital Fair, to which the party consented and immediately re paired to the headquarters of tie Executive Committee and placed the sum—$1.G5, in the hands of the Treasurer. The Executive Com mittee, who were in sessiou, placed the amount in a box to which they invite similar contribu tions. The box is labelled 11 o’clock contribu tions to Hospital Fair, and can be found at the headquarters of the Committee. Board of Trade Meeting.—Among the matters that will probably come before the meeting this evening will be a proposition to invite the Congressional Committee on Trans portation to visit this city among other places which the committee propose to visit during the vacation of Congress. Also the subject of ex pending the recent appropriation for the irn. provementof our harbor. Sudden Death. Mr. George Stevens, for merly of this city, was found dead in his bed at Boston, Saturday moruiug. His wife, who is a resident of Portland, started for Boston to pay him a visit only fifteen minutes before the dis patch was received announcing his death. The remains were brought to this city Saturday night for interment. Attention Ladies.—All ladies, or organiza tions, desiring to tako charge of tables during the Hospital Fair, aro requested to scud their names to the Ladies’ ex-Committee. No. 120 Middle street. It must he understood that, in so doing, theft ladies will become responsible for the furnishing of their own tables. _Per order. Gigantic Minstrels.—Duprez & Benedict’s gigantio minstrels play at City Hall this eve ning. They have just returned from a highly successful Southern tour, and do claim to be the most powerful company in existence. Thoir programme is a very attractive one, and run ning over with good things. Bloodgood’s Benefit.—It will be seen bi tile correspondence between the Executive Committee of the Maine General Hospital Fail and Mr. Harry Bloodgood, that another o1 those liberal acts of tendering benefits for char itable objects for which Mr. Bloodgood is st noted, will take place this evening at Music Hail.' This minstrel combination is unrivalled and the entertainment selected especially -foi this occasion, cannot fail to gratify the mosl fastidious. Let there be a crowded home, nol only for the benefit of the Hospital Fair, bul that Mr. Bloodgood may see that this generous act is fully appreciated by the citizens of Port land. ______ Steamer Movements.—The Allan mail steamship Moravian sailed for Liverpool at five p. m., on Saturday, carrying eight cabin and thirteen steerage passengers. The Sarmatian is the Dext steamship of this line due here. Among her cabin passengers was Gen. Neal How. Ho intends to be absent about a year, and will labor with his usual ability in behalf of the temperance cause. Tho General is in much better health than when he made his last European visit, and the cause has made great progress within ten years.

T ouiandsoj men, women and chddren, almost every of nation, were gathered, and it was with the greatest difficulty they could bo kept from forcing their way tl,tQUgh the gates. The poor fellows looked starved, wretched and miserably clad aud seemed very much di=couia<*ed On their arrival at Castle Gatdeu they were regis tered as usual, after which ™eir Yriendl who were wamuj* jn the information room sinT n the. names o? those whom they sought as a wife, child, a sister or a brother reloonlzad one of the unfortunate men whom they demn w the scene was heartrending.

The Government Investi gation. Examination or Capt. Williams. Halifax, N. S., April 5.—The inquiry order ed by the Dominion government into the Atlan tic disaster, commenced to-day, in the Custom House buildiug, before the Collector, E. M. Mc Donald. Captain McKenzie, a shipmaster, sat as associate with McDonald. Hon. S. L. Chan nen, Q. C., and H. Blanchard, Q. C., appeared for the captain. Captain Jam's A. Williams was called, sworn, and read a statment. In reply to questions of his counsel he added, “I was on the bridge up to twenty minutes past twelve. Up to midnight it was brilliant star light; after that, occasional sight of the stars. When I left the bridge I went into the chart _ AL!_ _ J• -a. *1. .A /vn iLn nnnn« deck, within easy sail of the officer of the deck I got up at two o’clock, looked into the whee house and then lay down for an alarm. In making calculations, I estimated her speei to be eleven knots; she had increased gradually frjm seven and a half to twelve knots; till third officer reported that she had run 122 mile at twelve o’clock; that agreed with my calcula tion; 1 expected the ship at three o’clock woulc bo eighteen or twenty miles south of Sambro and to lay by till daylight, I had not m; clothes off at all. I had every reason to pu confidence in the second officer: he had made two voyages in the ship; I always found him : steady, sober man Cross-examined by Mr. Blanchard—I had thi latitude by observation an 1 by ebronometei when I bore up for Halifax. The charts havi all been lost. The ship increased her s 63 after I bore up for Halifax, because we wen not then anxiou9 to economize coal. The speei at twelve o’clock was about twelve knots. I reckoned theu we were for j-eight miles fron Sambro, then bea ing due east. 1 did nol slack the speed. 1 did not shift tnc course. 1 considered we would pass five miles east 01 Sambro Led-e. I had never before hroughi ships into Halifax, or been on this coast. The third officer had been in the harbor twice. None of the other officers had ever been here. I die not use the lead at all. I did not sound because the night was clear, and Sambro Light should be seen twenty-one miles in clear weatherand in moderate weathei fifteen miles. I knew I was approaching the shore; the clearness of the night and the cer tainty of seeing the light were my only reasons for not sounding; I am now satisfied that when I went into the chart room I was mistaken in the locality of the ship; she must have been tur ther northward and westward than I thought; I knew the coast was an iron-bound and dan gerous one, though I had never been on it. I should have ;o stop the ship if I had beer sounding regularly from twelve o’clock to three o’clock; I would have been on deck and the ship w ould have gone ashore. It was my sec ond voyage to America on chat ship; when the ship struck there was considerable swell on there was no sort of a warning; she was going betweou nine and ten knots at the time; in some of the statements in the press it is said that I left the ship when about fifteen persons had been taken off the rigging; what I said was that when I left all but about fifteen bad left; when I left I was so benumbed and cold, that I could be of no assistance; I had had my leg broken a year before and was woait; I was asleep when the ship struck. Cross-examined by the commissioner—1 left word to be called at three; had I been called at sharp three, I think I would have seen the land in time to have averted the calamity; from the state of the weather when I came on deck 1 think the white snow line of the shore would be visible at a dist-uce of from two to three miles. The officers on duty, had they been energetic, might, I think, have seen that there was some thing ahead, and if the orders had been given to reverse the engines, the calamity might have been averted. I have always made it a rule tc make all my officers participate in the naviga tion of the ship, so that each ao4 all are equal ly couversaut with myself in the position of the ship and the deviation of the courses steered by com pass. The White Star steamers are supplied with printed orders for the guidance of commanders: those orders were that we are to take all possi ble precautions against fire, collisions and wreck; there are no special instructions as to precautionary steps in approaching the shore that is left entirely to the judgment of the com manders; the officers in charge have full pow er to change the course or stop the ship if nec essary, without consulting the captain; tliert are no special instructions as to souudinga. This ended the captain’s evidence. Once during his statement he was much affected. The court adjourned for one hour. Testimony of Daniel Kinnre. Daniel Kinarc, a cabin passenger, next testi fied. The main facts of the loss of the Atlan tic have been many times repeated. Of the captain and officers be says: The captain and officers were attentive to their duty. One of the cabin passengers spoke to me about the captain’s temperate habits. He iciuscu ninotuuiuun, a utjver saw miu uiiuia anything stronger than lemonade. It was day light before the passengers commenced to land. I do not know whether the steerage passengers were prevented from coming on deck or not. I have no reason to suppose they were. J. Spencer Jones’ Testimony. J. Spencer Jones, a cabin passenger testified: I was up till after 11 o’clock on Monday night, and then went to bod. I was aroused by the shock of the vessel striking. I went on deck and found everything ia confusion. J have had much experience with ships, being connected with the shipping house in Liver pool. The discipline of the Atlantic was ex cellent. The conduct of the captain and offi cers towards the passengers was all that could be desired. They were gentlemen in every sense of the word. They were always atten tive to their duty. I know of nothing that could have beeu done to save more lives thau were saved. Nicholas Brandt’s Testimony. I have been to sea a great deal. This was my sixth voyage in the White Star line. The conduct of the officers, and the discipline of the crew was very good. The officers were al ways energetic in the performance of their du ties. Nothing could beeu done to save life af ter the ship struck beyond what was done. The steerage hatches were open; there was also a passage from the steerage to the cabin. When I was on the wheel-house the time was 18 or 19 minutes past 3 o’cluck; the ship had theu keel ed over. Captain Williams stood on the side of the vessel below me encouraging the passen gers to keep moving about, and for six hours remained getting passengers into the boats. Charles IV. Allen’s Statement. Charles W. Allen testified I was a cabin passenger aud the first one on deck; my expe rience was much the same as that of others: I was saved by the ropes and the rock; It was my opinion that a good many more lives would have beeu saved if the ship had been mauued by efficient seamen. The captain could not get any number of men to do duty efficiently. One boat remained sound as much as three hours after the ship struck. That wa3 number one boat. My impressiou from the beginning of the voyage was that the ship was not well manned. There may have been a large enough crew but they were not efficient meu. The cap tain and officers, atter the vessel struck,seemed to exert themselves as much as they could. I considered the captain and the officers compe tent to perform their duty. I noticed that one of the rules was to exercise the crew at the boats once a week; ihat was not done. I be lieve that all steamers have that rule, but few obey it. There would have been difficulty in getting the boat into the water, but 1 believe it could have been accomplished. I heard of acts of insubordination among the crew the socond day after, but do not know of any. The Chief Officer’s Statement. John Wm. Firths, chief officer ol the Atlan tic, testified—At 12 o’clock noon, Monday, |the captain and 1 took observations by separate chronometers aud agreed very closely; the lon gitude was 63:65, latitude 41:39; a consultation of the officers was held as to the propriety of turning round to Halifax for coal, aud we unanimously agreed to do so as beiug the safest proceeding. At one o’clock the ship was head ed for Halifax, the course being north 24 east; the speed was then about nine knots; I then went below. At four o'clock I returned to the deck; my watch was from four to six; no al teration was made in the course; I was below from six to eight; at eight there had been a change of weather aud several showers of rain; I remained on deck till twelve. This course hud not been chauged; there had been dark cluuds but they hart passed aud it was then ejear; about half past eleven tl;e quartermaster told me tl;e speed’was 12 knots. At ten minutes to twelve the captain came on the bridge where I was aud enquired for the third officer (Brady) as he wished to have tli distance run by tlie ship from one p. m. to ink
night. Brady was at the time on his rounds t the ship. The captaiu afterwards came on tli bridge and told me ho placed the ship fot miles south of Sainbro Light I then went bt low. The captain’s orders were to keep a goo lookout for loose ice, and in the event of seein the light, to get it two points in the oort boi and call bim immediately, and under any cii cumstances to call him'not later than thrc o’clock. These orders I conveyed to the secon officer. The lead was not thrown over at all The lead was ready on the bridge. The [Th rest has been frequently repeated.] It was, in my opinion, impossible to liav launched the boat spoken of by Mr Allen 1 was carried away about daylight,' I have ha about twenty-seven years experience at se with a great many masters, and 1 foundcaptai Williams all that could be expected of one ii his position. I have been a shipmaster mvsell largely engaged iu the Indian trade. Tiier couid not have been auy attemps to keep tli steerage passengers below, as the companio: ways were open. I cannot give any opinion a to the quantity of coal she had or whether i was enough or not. I joined the steamer in tli morning and left a few hours later. Besides, might have been told that there was 900 tonso coal on board, but that would not prove it. Too often a short quality of coal is put in. ] considered that there was not the slightest risl when I went to bed at twelve oVlock. In th morning the ship was kept in her course fo three hours longer. The course was intended b take us about five miles east of Satnbro Light The point on which she struck is, I learn, abini seven miles west of the light. I can aceoun for the disaster in no other way than that then was a strong curreut setting to the north am west which we did not know of. The lead wa: hove regularly every two hours. On two o three days during the passage when we had n< observations our lead reckoning was found cor rect. The chief steward had reported a shor supply of provisions that night, because we tool on board more passengers than we expected This completed the chief officers statement ami the court then adjourned till tou o’clock Mon day. Halifax, April G.—Fourteen bodies were re covered yesterday, all by grappling. To-day. the weather being very favorable, the divers worked for the purpose of finding bodies and 27, all apparently steerage passengers were recovered. Many of them had considerable sums of money. A few packages of goods were brought up. The divers’ crew numbers 65 men. The only bodies now remaining un coffined on shore are those found to-day, all the others having been buried or coffined ready for burial. Those recognized by prayer books as Romau Catholics was taken to Terrance Bay, a few miles distant, aud buried in the Catholic cemetery. The remainder have been bnried iu the Episcobal cemete’-y at Prospect. Some of the bodies brought up to-day show that they died by suffocation, not by drowning. As the bodies are brought up by the divers they were placed iu a boat under the charge of Geo. Longard, a justice of the peace, aud conveyed to the hill side on Ryan’s Islaud, where Ed ward Ryrn, another magistrate, receives them and takes from them al 1 money and valuables, noting all in a book, with such marks of iden tification as can be found. The bodies of Mrs. Davidson and her daughter were found withiu jr short time of each other. WASHINGTON. Fratricide. Washington, April 5.—Two brothers, John [ and Michal Kane, having quarrelled on the 2Gth of March, Michael stabbed John with a butcher knife. The latter died last night from his i would.

AH the bones of the face auJ skull have been taken out in a scientific manuer, leaving only the scalp, which was, however, entire. The beard and rich brown hair is unsoiled. Drs. Patterson aud Hartigan were summoned to hold an inquest, but after an examination declined to do so, as they are of the opinion that it is the work of some mischievous medical students.

W.Coleman, his brother-in-law. E. T. Keel, a wealthy merchant, was threatened by Newell that if he did not give him $1000 by noon yes terday lie would shoot him. Last night, Keel, accompanied by his son Daniel, and Coleman found Newell opposite tlieir house, when the latter drew a repeater and shot him a number of times. Newell in his dying declaration ad mitted having threatened the life of Keel, but says Coleman was hired to kill him. Coleman has not been arrested but Keel offers to surren der him if the authorities will aocept $50,000 bond. Last Thursday, two men employed in Keen’s nursery, four miles east of this city, had an al tercation which resulted in one of them, Morris J.
