Portland Dispensary.—The annual meet ing of Die Dispeusary was held Monday after noon at S o’clock, the President, Olliver Ger rish, Esq., in the chair. From the report of the Secretary, Dr. F. H. Gerrish, we learn that 536 persons were vacci nated, in addition to the number treated during the year, amounting to about 400 patients. The officers elected were as follows: Board of Managers, Oliver Gerrish, J. T. McCobb, Andrew Spring, T. C. Hdrsey, W. S. Dana, H, M. Payson, William Deering, J. W. Water house and Mark P. Emery.

Gerrish, which took place at his residence yesterday morning. The event was not unexpected, for Mr. Gerrish has been severely ill for some weeks. At the time of his death the deceased held a position in the Custom House. For many years he was en gaged in the printing business, serving his ap prenticeship in the office of the old Portland Advertiser, of which paper his father was part proprietor. He was a man whose qualities of head and heart eudeared him to a host of friends. His loss will be felt by the communi ty. At tho time of his death he was fifty years of age. He leaves a wife and one daughter. 8. P. C. A. Mr. Editor,—Please allow me space to say to “Progress” of yesterday’s Press, in answer to his song of “Where, O Where,” in reference t® the Society with the long name and its spec ial agent, that, having resigned some months ago that important position, I trust X may bo excused for not being on tho ground when the unpleasant occurrence of which he speaks took place; as at the time I was undoubtedly urging some juvenile offender to pay more earnest heed to his educational interests. I would also suggest to “Progress” that, if iu the future he should be so unfortunate as to witness another affair of that kind, he repair at once to the office of our Municipal Judge who will, I am sure, give him a respectful hearing and render such a decision as the case may de mand. W. L. Fitcr. Past, Present and Future.—C. P. Kim ball, Esq., delivers his interesting and instruc tive lecture on the “past, present and future of Maine,” nt the India street Universalist church this evening.

Tlic Strikers Attack tbe Manhattan tins Works, but are Bcpnlscd. New York, April 9.—The gas men and the police came into a conflict last evening, and af ter a short and sharp tussle the police were vic torious. The strikers made a demonstration on the Manhattan gas works, ou the 10th ave nue side, but the attacking party was repulsed with little damage. Rallying, a rush was mado for the 17th street entrance, but the police quickly appearing there the strikers were forced back to a safe distance, where they had a con sultation and, the police say, obtained arms. Subsequently the whole force of strikers were massed and a rush was made, that the police might bo taken by surprise and the entrance be gained. The police were on the alert, however, and routed the gas men, many of whom had bloody heads and well bruised bodies. No pis tols were used on either side. It was understood that the attack was made on the works that the valve room might be gained and tbe gas shut off, so that the citizens generally might be in convenienced and made to sympathize with the strikers. During tbe conflicts outside the works there was a great excitement within.— Men were armed and expressed a determination to defend themselves. The strikers now num ber nearly 400, and have sent a delegation to Albany to ask the Legislature to appoint a commission to assess the value of the property of the different gas companies, preparatory to their purchase by the city, and the enforce of the eight hour law.

The Postal Car Controversy. The United States Senate Committee heard to-day the continuation of argumeuts in refer ence to the Postal Car question. President Hinckley, of the Philadelphia & Baltimore Railroad read an extract from the annual re ports, showing the small profits resulting to the company from the earnings of carrying mails. President Harris, of the Connecticut Va'ley road stated that hid company received $12,900 from the express per year, and if they were paid accordingly for mails, they would get $45, 950 yearly; as it is they only get $10 for the round trip by a 21 feet car with two messengers. If the latter paid their fare it would cost them $7. Mr. Hinckley resuming, read| documents to show the inequality of the postal reuumera tion. His own company received sixtv-two cents per mile for a thirty feet car on the Balti more Central branch, while ou tbe Delaware branch they only received fourteen cents per mile for a thirty feet car. The mails were car ried in same class of cars on both branches. The committee then adjourned until to-mor row when Mr. Davis will make an argument for the Post Office Department. Bcnry Sentence.

Poughkeepsie, April 9.—AU the ice in the Hudson River is on the move this morning. The steamer Hasbrauk from New York, did not reach here till ten o’clock this morning, being fully eight hours behind time in conse quence of ice obstructions.

A freight train was thrown from the track above Spraker’s by the suddenness of the flood, and a number of cars were damaged. A large section of the track is also reported to have been wash ed away. No trains west of Palative bridge can pass the obstructions. Trains from Tonda, Amsterdam and Schenectady are the only ones running.

A heavy pas senger train left for the west at two o’clock this afternoon in hopes of getting through all ri-'fit. The ice has not yet given war in either East or West Canada creeks. When it does the ice gorge in Mohawk will be hr. ken and the water west will theu begin to fall.

The great depth of snow yet in the interior has led to an unusual backwardness jimong the New England trade, but wo notice an improved demand from this section, and largo amount of goods will yet be distrib uted in this quarter. Some of the larger Southern markets are not purchasing very freely, but we can learn of no surplus stocks in the interior, and in some sections the market U quite bare. In the boot towns there is rather more life, but manufacturers are work ing cautiously. The Wool market.
