SIDNEY PEEHAM. By the Governor. George G. Stacy, Secretary of state. The Ninth of April. So busy a people are we and so many grand achievements have been crowded into the his tory ot tbe nation during the last twenty years that comparatively lew recall the anni versaries of great events. Consequently very few recall the fact that to-day is the eighth anniversary of one of the most memorable of the great events that will ever be conspicu ous in our history—the surrender of Gen. Lee and the Army of Northern V rginia at Ap pomattox Court House, Sunday April 9th, 1865, the virtual close of the war for the in VJI kUC U U1UU. 1U kUilk CUUUCCLI'JII !L will net be improper to briefly recall the circumstances of that memorable event. The movement which resulted in the sur render at Appomattox began March 29th. The army of operation consisted of the Army of the Potomac, embracing the Cavalry Corps under Gen. Sheridan and the 2d, 5th. 6th and 9th Corps wita two divisions of the Army of the James, the third holdmg the federal lines north of the James river. The 6th and 9th corps and the divisions of the Army of the James held the federal lines south of the Ap pomattox river while the 2d, 5th, and Cavalry connecting with the extreme left of the forti fied line were to operate against the South Side and Danville Railroads. The movement was a surprise to Gen. Lee, and his forces in front of the 2d and 5th corps were driven be hind their works alter considerable resistance, and the cavalry makiiig a wider detour seized Dinwiddie Court House,the junction of several roads connecting with the main army and leading to Five Forks the kev to the railroad. The night of the 29th, a heavy rain storm began which continued through the 30th and until the 31st, converting the flat country which was the theatre of opera tions into a vast quagmire and rendering the movement of trains impossible. On the 30th the two last named corps strengthened their positions and Gen. Lee hastened all his avail able infantry force to confront them and, if possible, parry the impending blow. On the 31st Gen. Lee attacked a brigade of the 51U Corps, making a movement upon the White Oak road leading to FiveForks,and striking it in its flank drove it back upon the main force causing considerable disorder and loss. The attack was however effectually resisted aDd Gen. Lee turned upon Gen. Sheridan who was at that time advancing on Five Forks, when there ensued the severest fight on the part of the cavalry during the war, which re sulted iu no advantage (o either party'. April 1st, after severe fighting in the almost impen etrable jungles about Five Forks, Gen. Sheri dan captured that important position with the 6thcorps and cavalry, taking 5000 prisoners. Three o’clock Sunday morning, April 2nd, under the cover of a terrific cannonade, the infantry all along the lines south of the Ap pomattox river, assaulted and carried the main lines of the enemy and by noon had seized the South Side railroad and established lines near the inner line of fortifications about Petersburg. Sunday night, Gen. Lee evacuated Petersburg and Richmond aud concentrated his army at Chestorville Court House, sixteen miles northwest of Peters burg. Early Monday morning the relentless pursuit and retreat for life began, and from that hour until the next Sunday morning there was no rest for man or beast. Monday Gen. Lee retreated along the north side of the Appomattox to Amelia Court House, where he expected to find supplies to feed his hungry army, but by mistake, his rations had beeD taken to Richmond, where they had been burned. Obliged to wait there to for age, Gen. Lee found hi3 way disputed by Gen. Sheridan and the 5tli corps and hesi tating to contest it, the arrival of the 2nd 6th corps rendered it necessary to change his plan, which was to join Johnston in west etn North Carolina, and make for Lynchburg, Va., and the mountains. April 6th there was much severe fighting, in which parts of the whole army participated, hut in which the 6th corps lost heaviest, though the cavalry, the 2nd corps and a part of the 5th corps were hotly engaged. During the day large numbers of prisoners, many pieees ot artillery and several hundred wagons were captured. During the. 7tli, there was considerable fighting and Gen. Lee made a stand at Farm ville, seizing a natural position of great strength. At this juncture in the pursuit, a large part of the cavalry with the 5th corps and army of the James started to out-run the enemy by the way of Edward’s Court House and place itself in Gen. Lee’s front. During the night of the 7 m the enemy quietly left Fannville and continued the flight, though his troops were nearly famished for want of food, not having an apology for a ration since the Monday before. The fed ral army had hardly half rations at any time and had literal ly nothing on the morning of the 8th, besides being worn out by marching and fighting day and night. During the 8th, there was comparatively little fighting, the army following in pursuit not pressing very hard in order that Gen. Sheridan might better get to the enemy's front. Lute the same evening, Sheridan’s cavalry appeared jn frolJ{ 0f tlie enemy near Appomattox Court House and by a severe all nig t maicb, the infantry came to his aid just in time to repel Gen. Lee's altack early Sunday morning, the 9th. Tlie great Confederate leader saw that further resistance was utterly hopeles, and tlicre in the early dawn of that Sabbath m 6 , report of the last rebel cannon as iS’away among the distant hills, proclaimed that ,he cause for which it had spoken was already Growing out of the results of that ninth of April, eight years ago, what remarkable events have transpired. Slavery has been abolished ; the States that so madly rushed into rebellion have been restored to their po sition in the Union and the fullest rights of citizenship restored to all except a very few who can have the boon for the asking Of the bitterness .V'atfeat yJ';Ub"e8S mucU ueieat yet lingers among the people who were so heroic in defense of the wrong; but when we consider how far that has given way to reason and better jutlg meet during tb- past eight years, may we not expect that in as many more years it will be entirely obliterated? Partizan papers and orators proclaim that the dominant party has exercised a tyrannical power and shown a vindictive spirit toward . the Southern people and leaders. But the fact that the fullest rights of citizenship have been conferred upon all but about two hundred and that these may have their disabilities removed when they ask it, brands the state ment as a falsehood. In the history of civile ized nations can an instance be found where men who have led in a conspiracy against the Government, have been allowed to take seats in the councils of the nation? Is it an evi dence of vindictive hate that no one of the leaders of the rebellion has been brought to trial for his crime of treason? Is it an indication of proscription that a dozen or more of men conspicuous in the Lost Cause ate now members of Congress? Is it an evidence of a purpose to disparage and to punish that the late Vice President of the Confederacy will be admitted to the next House of Representatives when the Repub lican party lias a two-thirds vote; or does the fact of Vice President Wilson having called Gen. Gordon who surrendered at Appomattox and who is now a United States Senator from Georgia, to preside temporarily over the Senate show a disposition to cherish the ani mosities oi the past? Does the fact that President Grant has appointed several con spicuous leaders of the Confederacy, among whom are Gen. Orr, of South Carolina and Gen Longstreet, indicate his purpose to keep alive the unhappy cause of discord ? The Connecticut Election. The result of the election in Connecticut, Monday, is not so satisfactory as it might have been, but affords the assumed leaders of the Republican party a lesson, which, if heeded, will be worth several victories. The result is partially due to the bad faith of the New Haven Republicans who gave a large vote to the Democratic candidate for Governor on account of a local jealousy growing out of the question of the location of a State House.— But outside of the New Haven feud there is evidence that the Connecticut Republicans took this course to administer a rebuke to those assumed Republican leaders who engi neered through Congress what the people call the “salary steal.” This is shown from the fact that Gen. Hawley runs sixteen hundred ahead of his ticket and that all of the Repub lican Congressmen have an aggregate major ity over the Democratic Congressional major ity of two thousand in the State. The Re I publicans were determined to show their con I tlomnoHnn nf firm ‘RntlAr’c Ghliomo htr r1r»_ feating the State ticket and tlieir appreciation of the Republican Congressmen of the State, all of whom voted against it. Had Messrs. Hawley, Kellogg and Starkweather voted with Gen. Butler, not one of them would have been elected. The Connecticut Republicans say to the bullying demagogu'sm of Gen. Butler and his associates take back seats. Will they be made to heed the lesson ? Isn’t it about time that the Maine Certral officers take some measures to break up the gambling or rather robbing that a set of black legs have so long carried on with perfect im punity on their trains ? Tho flats that lose their money by three card monte are not to | be pitied but they may have friends who may | suffer by tbeir being robbed. At any rate, ! persons travelling on the trains of a well ; conducted railroad have good reason to take ] it for granted that the corporations will pre i vent them from being robbed. Several con | ductors on the Maine Central have made it hot for the blackleg fraternity on tbeir trains, and it is to be hoped that this disreputable crowd will be looked after on railroad trains. They ought to be in Thomaston. The Presque Isle Sunrise in a compliment ary notice of the reception of ex-Congress ! man Lynch, closes the same with a warm eu , logy, and expresses the hope of placing at the head of its columns after the Republican ! State Convention: “For Governor, John ; Lynch of Portland.” j We regret to learn that that model local ; paper, the Bridgton News was a victim of the ! fire of Monday night in that village. It is ! hardly necessary to predict that so lively a journal as the News will not long lie in the ashes. It has just been discovered in Washington that the pension of the orphans of men who lost their lives in the late war, under sixteen years of age, was increased two dollars a month each by the late Congress. The Atlantic Disaster. Tho following testimony of Quartermaster Thomas of the steamship Atlantic indicates that there was at least one subordinate officer that realized the peril the ship was in by thus approaching the shore: Robert Thomas, quartermaster, testified: I [ was on duty between 12 o’clock and the time the ship struck: my duty during the first two hours was to make coffee for the officers and clean the brass works- I went down, got the ounce and gave it to the officers; at half-past one 1 went to the second officer and remarked that the ship ought to stand to the southwest, and that she had run the distance uecessary to make Sambro light at one o’clock; the previ o-’*day I got the latitude and longitude of the ship s position, and also the latitude and longi tudo of Halifax; this information I got from a cabin passenger, and I made the calculation in my ownmmd. (Witness submitted a calcula tion made in pencil.) Estimated that the ship had run from eleven to twelve knots per hour and according to that estimate we had passed the 'ight. (Witness then repeated the words he address ed to the second officer.) The latter he said re plied that he was not captain and that I was not mate, and he could not do as he pleased ■ he was standing in company with the boats wain, Lang, who was drowned in the port sme of the ship; I then asked Mr. Brown, the fourth officer, if I should go to the main yard and look for the land; he answered it is no use; l then said I can pick up the land more readily l'ia“ a,ny other man, as I have been on the coast before, I knew the character of the e°nrti,h1V,8’te<1 Halifax in 1863; I told the fourth officer he w_uuld not feel the land till he struck upon it; I then took my turn at the wheel; at three o’clock the weather began to wt a little hazy; about that time the captain’s bov came on deck with a cup of cocoa; the second officer told him not to call the captain, as lie would do it himself; at twelve minute’s past three the captain was called; I knew the time iiic-cioci.y, uui.ttU3e i was asxea Dy tne second of ticer; the captain did not rouse at first, and the second officer went away; a few minutes after he returned: I said the best thing you can do is to shake him and get him up; as' the captain was bei g catled the second time I heard Car roll, who was on the watch call out, “Ice ahead; I left the wheel and ran to the door to see whether it was the ice; I saw white foam and it was ice; I immediately ran bark to the wheel and put the helm hard a starboard and rail to the telegraph connecting with the engine room, but at that instant she struck-, I ran aft to get axes to cut the boats clear; a woman at that moment rushed up aud cried out “Save me:” 1 told her to wait till I came; when I re turned with the axes I took her and her boy up to the saloon deck, when I heard Mr. Brady cry out “where are the axes;” I cried out that they had all been distributed; I was cuttiDg away the starboard boat wlieu she listed over; Prudy, another Quartermaster, was with me; at the time he said to me, “Thomas, will you come and swim ashore with me; I said not yet; I am going to save Mooney’s mother; he then wished me good bye; he was the first men who left the ship for the shore; after I saw Mary Mooney and her boy swept away I thought I would try to save myself; I took off my coat, jumped over and safely reached the shore. Cross-examined by Mr. Bitchie—After one o’clock I calculated that the ship had run a hundred and forty-four miles; the wind about 2 o,clock was south and pretty well astern, but variable; wbeu the 2d officer called the Captain I he said it was getting thick and Sambro Light was not yet in sight; when the ship struck the 2d officer and Captain were in the chart room; I did not notice any person standing on the bridge: I cannot say if I was 14 miles from the place the ship struck how Sambro Light would itoar on the course we ran, but I looked straight ahead; when Mr. Brady called out “where are the axes," I did not se» him: this is the third or fourth voyage I made ou the Atlantic. At half-past 1 A. M. I judged wo were 14 mil.-s from Sambro; at 1 o’clock ou the former day I estimated that we were 160 or 170 miles from Sambro. Cross e ia1 ilined by Mr. McDonald—I spoke to the second officer as I did because I felt very nneasy; 1 knew the coast was venr difficult to make out, for when 1 was in Halifax before in the City of London I remembered that the ship sometimes went very slow and sometimes at half speed, anil that the lead was hove every ^cu ennutes: Xdid not notice that any sleet fell on Tuesday night; I do not think that the ship was in a condition to run 18 knots without can vas; I have now reason to Ix licve that my pre viously expressed belief that the ship had run her distance was correct. 1 Ke-exa mined by Mr. Kitchie_T i.„_t i that, there is a current on that coa«t\nT? ter Lime running from two and u halfUie TlU’ knots; I cannot teil how it sets «n«l t 10 ,*our aliowauoe for it in my calculation. 1 Ulade no The cerebro-spinal meningitis is prevailing to ' a considerable extent in Fall Kiver. Destructive Fire at Bridoton. r . Bridoton, April 8th, 1873. To the Editor of the Press : At seven o’clock last Monday evening Frank Kyorsou, at work at the Cumberland House, oridgton Centre, discovered flames and smoke ssuing from the upper part of the country store md furniture ware-house of Robert A. Cleaves, m Main street, in the central portion of the rillage, He gave the alarm, and the bell of the Cumberland Mills and the whistle of Poudieh >rry Mills quickly rallied a large crowd of citi tens to the scene. There being no engine in the place, nor any other facilities for extin guishing fires, except buckets, all efforts to save the edifice were unavailing, and it was soon totally destroyed, togther with the four adjacent buildings. The latter were occu pied by the livery stable of Isaiah Gore, photo graph rooms of .Tames L. Merrill, Jonathan Fogg’s blacksmith shop, E. E. Wilder1 s har ness shop, and the printing establishment of Major H. A. Shorey, publisher of the Bridg ton Nejos, recently fitted up by him, and being one of the best arranged and most convenient country offices in the State. There being no wiud, the further progress of the flames was stayed, and by ten o'clock wholly subdued. The losses and insurance are as follows: R. A. Cleaves, loss on goods from $5,000 to $(5,000; in sured for $3,500; on livery stable building, $1800; insured for $1200; Royal Sentcr’s loss on builiding occupied by R. A. Cleaves, nearly $1200; insured for $1000; Jouathau Fogg’s Iosb is over $300; no insurance; E. E. Wilder, $G00; no insurance; James L, Merrill, photographer, 3400; no insurance; Wm. Riley, blacksmith, loss slight; Isaiah Gore, $200; no insurance; H. A. Shorey’s publishing building was valued at $1500, and his printing materials, stock. &c., at $2,000; the former was insured for $800, and latter for $1500. One of the presses and tho materials and stock were saved, although in a badly damaged state, the “forms” being pied in removal. D. C. Sanders, merchant tailor, in the same building, saved all his goods and im plements. The valuable law library and other books of Samuel C. Smith, Esq., adjoining Mer rill’s rooms, were saved, as were also the books and papers of the other parties named. The fire, which has made a sad gap in the attrac tive row of buildings in this part of our beauti ful village, is thought to have caught from a defect in the chimney. *** Farmington Letter. Fabmington, April 7, 1873. OUR STANDARD ITEM is the weather, of which we have lately had a variety.

A good joke was recently played on a grocery dealer not many miles from Livermore Falls.— The merchant had sold a customer a barrel of flour, delivered it at the house, and after two or three days, not hearing anything from i t supposed it suited the family. But during this time the customer had received an addition to his household treasures, in the form of a bounc ing baby. Now it seems that the customer has a child who was possessed of more than a usual amount of curiosity, and it tried in every con ceivable way to find out where that baby came from. Finally the mother told it that she found the baby in the barrel of flour. The child seem ed hardly satisfied with the answer, but proba bly thought best to ask no more questions, so it turned away and went directly to the bar rel. After looking at it for some moments it put on its hat and started for the store from whence the flour came. Walking up to the merchant it said, “Mr.-, ’oo don’t know what we fin’ in our flour. “What was it, my dear?” asked ths merchant. “Why, we fin’ a ’ittle baby in it!” The trader, of conrse, was very much surprised at what he heard, so, on his way to dinner, he called at the house and asked, “Mrs.-what was it you found in that barrel of flour?” Imagine his feelings, when on being asked into an adjoining room, he was made acquainted with the true facts in the case. Suffice it to say, the merchant wishes people wouldn’t keep asking him, “Well, Mr. -, how about that baby in the flour?” The effort to establish a cornet band in this village bids fair to succeed; between $300 and $400 nas already been subscribed, and none of our “heavy men” have given as yet. Jack. A Nervous Man in the sleeping car on the night train from St. John a few nights since was awake when the train stopped at a sta tion, and he heard the conductor call out “Jackson Brook.” Jumping from his berth he seized a companion in the berth above him, dragged the unfortunate man out into the mid dle of the car and strove to rash him to the door, shouting at the same time “The axle’s broke! The axle’s broke! We’re all going to destruction!” It was some time before ho was calmed down enough to understand that he had misunderstood the conductor.— Whiff. News and Other Items.
