THE PBESS. FEIDATMORWSG. APRIL 11, 1878 Evkry regular attache of the Press is furnished witb a card certificate countersigned by Stanley T. Pullen, Editor. All railway, steamboat and bote managers will confer a favor upon us by demanding wod- ntiaU of every person claiming to represent our Journal, as we have information that several ‘‘bum mers” are seeking courtesies iu the name of the Press, and we have no disposition to be, even pn* S'vely, a party to such fraud. VV I do uot read anonymous letters and oomnmni ruli ms. Tho name and address of the writer are in all esses indispe ab e, not necessarily foi publication but as a guaranty ofg'iod faith. W ; cannot undertake to return or ! re erve com munications that arc not used. STATE OF MAINE. BY THE GOVERVOK, A. PROC L A. jVT A. T ION". In humble recognition of our dependence npen Almighty God, who h s bo graciously remembered us in tho abundance of His loving kindness and tender mercies, I do, with the advice of the Executive Coun cil, appoint Thursday, tue Seventeenth day of April Next, as a day of public Fasting, Humilia tion and Prayer, and recommend its appropriate ob servance by all the people of the State. Consecrat ing the day to prayer and supplication, that we may he strengthened in all upright purposes and every noble endeavor, and mindful of those whom misfor tune and sorrow havo made deserving our kinu-y sympathies, let us not forget those acts of charity m.d good will which give to life its highest joy, and l.-ft the thoughts in holy communication with the Great Giver of all goo-1. “Is not this tho Fast that I havo chosen? to loose tho bonds of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and 10 let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? Is it not to deal thy bread to the hun gry, and that thon bring the poor that are cast out, to thy house?** • dven at tho Council Chamber, in Augusta, this twenty-fifth day of March, ill the year of our Loid, one thousand eight hundred and seventy three, aud of the Independence of the UnlUd States of America tho muotv-seventh. SIDNEY PERHAM. By the Governor. George G. Stacy, Sccretarv of State. Entombed spirits—tbe two Augusta rum sellers in the Kennebec jail.—Augusta Jour nal. Under the circumstances said spirits are not of a very high proof. Fob an old man about giving up a part of his great power, Brigham Young is decided ly cheerful. A fe v Sundays since the old man denounced tbe Grecian bend, and il lustrated his remarks by wiggling over tbe platform to tbe great amusement of the audi ence. The National Agricultural Congress will meet in Indianapolis, Ind., Wednesday, May 28th, and promises to be of great importance in advancing the organization of the produc ers of the country to resist the monopoly ot railroad corporations aud inaugurate a sys tem of cheaper and improved facilities for transportation. Now here is an item which is of no little importance to a great many people and if they lau to see it Dy not tauing ana reaaing the Press, the neglect of so obvious a duty will doubtless cost them and their excellent tem pers the price of several subscriptions. It is this: It is reported on good authority that the city assessors have concluded to increase the valuation of persons heretofore taxed, for any considerable amount of property, from ten to twenty per cent, if they fail to return a full valuation immediately. A word to the wise, etc. Last Tuesday Thomas M. Reed, Esq., was re-elected Mayor of St. John, receiving 848 votes to 761 for Charles W. Weldon, Esq. There was considerable excitement attending the election, and when it was over a large crowd gathered la fropt of the Court House where the successful and defeated candidates both made speeches which were cheered. One or two little rows followed after the man ner of British elections and bon-fires were kindled on the principal streets in the eve ning. The comments of the Republican press up on the action of the Jfew Haven Republican leaders in selling out the Republican State ticket to the Democrats are most severe. The “Baconian philosophy” of politics and the particularly bad political faith of that section are becoming notorious. But perhaps it is no toriety that they are seeking, and feel that they can obtain it in no other way. The New Haven journals are attributing the defeat to Gen. Hawley and the Couraut. This reminds one of a thief caught in the act of stealing, charging the cause of the offense to the man who couldn't lock the door. On Tuesday, Rochester, N. Y., was the scene of what may be termed a foolish loss of life by several of a curious crowd that insisted in standing upon a platform that was under mined by water, though warned of their peril. Wednesday, Middletown, Conn., furnishes a shocking accident, occasioned by men who should know something of the laws of gravity and understand the fact, so often demonstra ted, that unsupported walls will fall. Doubt less the inquests to be held in both these cases will shirk the responsibility by declaring that both calamities were visitations of Prov idence. In the Dominion parliament last Tuesday, Sir John A. Macdonald moved a resolution providing for a committee to inquire into the charges of the opposition in reference to the action of the ministry in connection with the Canada Pacific Railway. Sir John explained that the resolution of Mr. Huntington was considered by the ministry as a vote of want of confidence in the government and th -re fore defeated. The House proceeded to the election of the committee which resulted in the choice of Messrs. Macdonald, Pictou’ Hillyard, Cameron, Blanchet, all of whom received 104 votes to 70 for the opposition candidates. In our issue of April 2 we published an extract from the N. Y, Commercial Advertis er, Btating that Mr. E. L. Godkin, editor of the Nation, was driven “from his place in the ereeamens uureau, lor maipracuces m mat most sacred of all the departments of the Gov ernment,” We have received a letter from Mr. Gopkin, under date of April 7, in which he say9, that the paragraph in question is an “impudent invention,” that he “never had any connection with the Bureau or any other government office or department, direct or in direct, nor has been driven from any place of any kind whatever.” We are glad to give the deuial as much publicity as we gave the charge. In New York, the other day, Josiah Mor gan pleaded guilty of manslaughter in the second degree. Josiall's Indiscretion was simply kicking and beating hi3 wife to death. His counsel ex Judge Cardozo ofsomewhat un savory fame, besought in court in feeling and eloquent words to deal mercifully with the pris oner because the kicking and beating which resulted in death was not done in a brutal manner. This is a conception of the artistic that must he entirely confined to Gotham. The New York Commercial suggests that should Morgan survive his imprisonment, he might start a new business and Lang out a shingle with the inscription: “Wife murders performed with neatness, gentleness and de spatch, by Josiah Morgan late of Sing Sing.’ One of the leading agricultural papers of the West, the Prairie Farmer of Chicago with several others in that section, brings forward the name of S. L. Goodale of Saco, who has achieved so wide a reputation as Secretary of the Maine Board of Agriculture, for the of fice of Commissioner of Agriculture. It is said that the present incumbent finds himself unqualified for the position and a committee of the Agricultural Congress which met at Washington last winter called the President’s attention to the fact of his unfitness for the office. That the leading agricultural paper of the West should notice the qualifications of a man so far out of its section for the responsi ble position, shows better than anything else, the narrowness of the men who displaced him last winter. There can be no doubt but that Mr. Goodale possesses a rare combina tion of fhe peculiar qualifications for the posi tion named. The San Francisco Chronicle is dispose J to take a very gloomy view of the republic and suggests a remedy for the evil which has the precedent from a single t.id of being most ef ectual. It says: •‘Oui railroad bonds do not find a rea y market In Europe. The balance of «de runs agaiust us. One hundred thousand Americans are going abroad to spend a hun dred millions at Vienna. Our imports large Iy exceed our exports; gold has advauced to 118. Extravagance runs i iot in the land, and we are impoverishing our country in the pur chase of luxuries and gew-gaws. We are liv ing extravagantly and beyond our means. Monopolies are sapping the foundation of our prosperity, and political profligacy is under mining the foundation of our Government. Our statesmen are becoming corrupt, our of flce-holders venal, and our Legislatures are easily bribed. Murder runs riot throughout the land. Our people are becoming demoral ized ; our women are, some of them, not as good as they ought to be; our preachers, some of them, are not as devout as in the old en time. Our children are fast and riotous. We have departed from the simplicity, econo my and honesty of other days. The only rem edy we can suggest is the Deluge. We re spectfully submit that, as it proved a success once, it is worth a second expeiiment. Ti-.ose who arc inclined to regard Acade mies as institutions of the past would have their misgivings as to the efficiency of this time-honored rneaus of acquiring higher ed ucation very thoroughly shaken by a visit to the venerable Hebron Academy. This insti tution,the oldest we believe in the State, whose alumni have won distinction in all parts of the country, is blooming as if giited with per ennial youth, under charge of Mr. Moody and his accomplished assistants, lleie are gather ed 118 pupils—nearly all from other towns than Hebron. The college class numbers 12 likely, iuelligent looking young men, and there is at lyceum where all the questions of the day arc discussed with that vigor and exhaustiveness which we ail remember as an element of school debating clubs. The place is most ad mirably adapted to educational purposes, the strictly rural surroundings offering no tempta tions to diversions inconsistent with study, which perhaps accounts for the air of strict attention to business that is specially observ able and contrasts favorably with the inat tentive and abstracted bearing too often no ticeable in pupils studying in larger commu nities. The school seems very successful and, we think, merits a word of hearty commen dation. ___ Political Notes. From (he most reliable returns it appears that the political complexion of the Ohio Constitutional Convention will he 51 Repub licans to 40 Democrats and 7 Liberals, with seven counties to hear from. The Connecticut assembly will be divided politically as follows:—Senate, Republicans, 11, Democrats 10; Republican majority, 1.— House of Representatives, Republicans 109, Democrats 132; Democratic majority, 23.— Democratic majority on joint ballot, 22. Last year there was a Republican majority in the Senate of 9, in the House of 19, and 28 on joint ballot. The Boston Travellers Washington dis patch says that some of Speaker Blaine’s friends express the opinion that his re elec tion as presiding officer of the next House will be almost unanimous. Senator Ames announces himself as a can didate for Governor of Mississippi, and also for re-election to the Senate. Ex-Senator Pomeroy is still in Washington aud still hopes to be Caldwell’s successor. So does Caldwell. The Bank of England Forgers.—The Chicago Tribune gives an interesting account of the careers of the Bidwell Brothers, who are under arrest for the recent gigantic for geries upon the Bank of England. It seems they once lived at Grand Rapids, Mich., where one of the brothers filled the role ol Baptist clergyman, for which his clerical ap pearance well fitted biin. One of them had previously swindled Cincinnati parties out ol about $60,000. After a while the trio bought a stock of goods on credit in New York and, opening a grocery store, failed in a few weeks, swindling numerous creditors out of large amounts. George then vis ited Chicago, and after a few unimportant op rations there he joined his brother Austin in Wheeling, West Va, the latter having been driven out of New Orleans for swindling. At Wheeling they were unsuc cessful, and were sentenced to jad for one year, but escaped after two months’ confine ment. After visiting Chicago and Quincy they went t.o New York and Boston. At Bos ton George was convicted of forgery, and sent to Charlesto vn Penitentiary for five years. Austin was also arrested in New Yprk, and sent to SingSing for tv/o years. This was in 1869. George was pardoned by the Governor of Massachusetts soon after his incarceration. Austin served out his full term. George came west soon after his release, and was in desti tute circumstances, when he resorted to preaching, which was a never failing resource up to his final departure for Europe. It is now to be hoped that English justice will fin ally dispose of these precious rascals. Terrible Disaster at Sea.—On the 5th of December, about 150 miles west of Cape Pilar, the British bark James W. Elwell of New Brunswick was burned on her voyage from Swansea to Valparaiso with a cargo of coal. The captain states that the fire was so violent that he had scarcely time enough to embark his crew, and that shortly after the ship ex ploded, causing a sound somewhat similar to the report of a cannon. The fire was first no ticed about sunset. There was a vessel in sight at the time. The captain tbrnks that no assistance was rendered them on account of its being so dark. The crew was composed of fif teen individuals, of whom two died by accident previous to the catastrophe. On the day of the fire twelve men and a woman embarked in the only boat the ship possessed, taking along with them a bag of biscuits, this being their only provision. Six weeks after they managed to reach the coast (which they were unacquainted with, as they had no charts with them); one of the crew died, and was soon followed by nine more of his companions, owing to hunger and cold. The only survivors are the captain, John Wren, Sarah Ann Farrington, and James Wilson, sailor. These last were picked up on ths 15th of February at the entrance of the Straits of Magellan, having been afloat seventy two days since the sad occurrence. An Unfortunate Case.—During the early years of the war of the rebellion a young man wont to Boston from one of the inland towns of Maine, and enlisted for three years in one of the Massachusetts regiments. He left be hind him a young wife, aud both were full of hope that their life would be one of unity and happiness when the cruel war should be over, nomine peculiar irauspneu uuuuue uaitie.or Fredericksburg, iu which the regiment "to which the young man was attached participat ed. He was known to have been in the thick est of the fight during the memorable day, but was never seen or heard of afterwards, and his fate has always been a mystery to this day, though every effort has been made to unravel it. In consequence of inability on the part of the wife to prove that he was killed, or in any way lost his life in the service, she has since been deprived of any aid from the State or a pension from the General Government, and for the ten years that have since elapsed she has supported herself by her needle, though totally blind. A day or two since she desired to go to Keene, N. H., and the above facts coming to the notice of Superintendent Heywood of the Fitchburg Railroad, she was furnished with a free pass. A Superb Voice.—The Boston Globe speaks as follows of Miss Cary’s recent appearance in that city:—“Miss Annie Louise Cary was rap turously welcomed upou her appearance, and looked verv charming. She saug an aria from Rossini’s “Italiana iu Algieri” with great flu ency and in a manner that was distinguished by great brilliancy. He superb voice was heard ‘to rare advantage in the slow movement, and its admirable flexibility had full opportunity for display iu the brilliant allegro. She was recall ed three times with great onthusiasm,hut grace • fully declined an encore.” CirrzExs’ Meeting at White Rock.—An enthusiastic meeting of the citizens of White Bock was held Thursday at that place to con sider measures looking to the establishment of a large tannery at or near the P. and O. Rail road station. Remarks were made by several indicating their willingness to to take stock in the enterprise, some to the amount of a thou sand dollars. Thocitizens in‘this place are thoroughly in earnest and mean to do some thing. A committee of investigation was chosen, consisting of M. T. Files, G. 0. Buck and Rev. 0. A. Maddox, who will interview practical and experienced tanners aud report at a future meeting. Prolific Sheep.-Moses Purington, who lives at White Bock, on the line of the P. aud O railroad, has now in his possession four sliecp which he has owned for the past fivo years, and during that time these prolific animals have produce'1 forty lambs which have been sold at five dollars a piece. Tlio product of wool during the same time was sold for one hundred dol lars, thus making the income from the four sheep §300. Who can heat it? Smoking and Dancing.—The New York Methodist conference, in session at Hudson last week, took up the discussion of dancin* and smoking. A series of resolutions was present ed and unanimously adonted, to the effect that tie ru'c prohibiting dancing, attending at thea tres, and playing games of chance, is very nec essary to be observed and should hereafter be ‘calmly enforced. The tobaaco question came up soon after and was not settled unanimously, which shows by the way how much easier it is for some ministers to have their congregations give up errors in which they themselves do not share. The reasons against dancing and thea tre-going were that as diversion they were in consistent with Christian character. The rea sons against tobacco were, first, a very injurious physical effect, and, second, a total undermin ing of the moral nature. The tobacco resolu tions were attacked and defended by turns un til they were postponed, in the midst of a scene which anybody would leave a theatre to wit I ness in a church. Sews and Other Items. A Mississippi paper puts up the name of Hon. Adelbert Ames for Governor. Women are henceforth eligible to the posi tion of school trustees in Illinois. A son of ex-1‘resident Tyler is lecturing cu Congressman Shellabarger of Ohio, now re fuses to participate in the back pay grab, temperance in California. Rochester ice dealers refuse to deliver ico on Sundays this season. A New York Alderman was assaulted recent ly by one of his constituents for whom he fail ed to procure an office. The correspondent of the New York Herald has been arrested by the Cuban authorities; of course, that is what he wanted. A California newspaper writer has been hearing the “frogs croak in the silent ether blue.” The Executive Mansion of Illinois was'the scene of a mush and milk festival on Thursday night last. The people of Edgefield, Tern,., are becoming rivals of Nashville for the location of the Van derbilt University. The rate of taxation in Baltimore has been fixed at $1 63 on the $100 of assessable prop erty. The amount to bo raised is $2,872,226. Rev. Father Brady of Roseudale, N. Y., has been threatened with a coat of tar for horse whipping and heating with his fists Mary Flynn, his cousin, who acted as his sen-ant. Representative Finkelnburg of Missouri adds his name to the list of those Congressmen who refused to participate in the salary grab, and orders that it be paid into the Treasury. Mr. James Smith, an Australian journalist, has received a spiritual communication that the world is to he “burned as black as a forgot ten toast by a wave of fire” within a year. Western men are getting their names into the local papers by wearing the first straw hats of the season in their respective locali ties. By vetoing one little bill providing for ex tensions, Gov. Hartranft, of Pennsylvania, has wiped out 1,623 private bills. It was a good day’s work. The people of Tiverton, R.

A man at Fort Wayne, Ind., dropped his WCU 1111CU pUCbUlUUUA 1U «V Ut![IUb UU liUC ISli inst., and found it sonic time after,as everybody around had heen afraid of being “fooled.” The temperance societies are disgusted with August Pickard of Rochester, who is 106 years old, uses tobacco to excess, and has a weakness for mixed drinks. There is great indignation in Illinois over the deeision of the State Supreme Court adverse to legislative regulation of fares and freights on railroads. One of the judges has resigned in oonsoquence. An Iowa dealer, who sold several pumps, “to be paid for wheu Greeley was elected,” re cently brought suit against his customers for pay. Judgment was given for the defendants, with costs. Boston stands aghast once more at the audac* ity of the organ-grinders, who have invented a new torture, taking their position on the plat form of the street-cars, and grinding out “tunes” during the whole trip. The St. Louis Democrat is striving laboriously to introduce the term “Roosters,” applying it to “men who are politicians only that they may be plunderers,” and “who meet every night at Robbers’ Roost,” “every largo city having its Robbers’ Roost.” The man who sells the lease of the corner of Broadway and Fulton streets to the New York Evening Post for $250,000 was an oyster catcher, working in New York Bay, seventeen years ago. Getting a little money he worked his way up, and finally invested all the money he had in a long lease of that land at $19,000, which he has just said for $250,000. Gov. Smith of Georgia has issued invitations to the Governors of twenty-two Western and Southern States and the Mayors of 153 cities, together with the members of the Committee on Water Lines, to take part in the convention to bo held in Atlanta on the 20th of May, to take into consideration the subject of water communication with the ocean through the State of Georgia by means of the proposed At lantic and Great Western Canal. Thousands of persons stood star-gazing in Broadway, New York , Wednesday afternoon, with the expectation of seeing a man try to fly from Trinity church steeple. Each loiterer held in his or her hand a cirenlar to the effect that Professor Cautell A. Biglie would begin his aerial performances at 3 o’clock. After waiting patiently for some time it was discover ed that the Professor’s name was composed of the words “Can tell a big lie,” and the sight seers rapidly dispersed, very angy with them selves at having been so easily “sold.” STATE NEWS.

J Sometimes medicines that will stop a cough will of ten occasion the death of the patient. It locks up the liver, stops the circulation of the blood, hemorrhage follows, and, in fact, clogging the action of the very organs that caused the cough. J Liver complaint and dyspepsia are the causes of two-tliiids of the cases of consumption. Many are now complaining with dull pain in the side, the bow els sometimes costive and sometimes to loose, tongue coated, paiu in the shoulder blade, feeling som dmes very restless, and at other times drowsy; the food that is aken lies heavily on the stomach, accompani ed with acidity and belching of wind. These symp toms usually originate from a disordered condition of the etomach or a torpid liver. Persons so affected, if they take one or two heavy colds, and if the cough in these cases be suddenly stopped, the lungs, liyer and stomach clog, and remain torpid and inactive, and before the patient is aware of his situation, the lungs are a mass of sores, and ulcerated, and death is the inevitable result. Sehenck’s Pulmonic Syrup is an expectorant which does not contain any opium, nor anything calculated to check a cough suddenly. Schcnck’8 Seaweed tonic diss v the food, mixes with the gastric juice of the sto ach, digests easily, nourishes the system-and creat a healthy circula tion of the blood. When the els are costive, skin shallow, and the patient is a billious habit, Schenck’s Mandrake Pills are required. Th2f5JS-e2<S8!K are Prepaired by Dr. J. H.
